More than 6,000 people are returning home on Iberia’s special repatriation flights, organised in collaboration with Spain’s Foreign Ministry and the Madrid embassies and consulates of numerous countries.
Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 crisis, Iberia has made repatriation flights from Madrid to Argentina, Ecuador, Colombia, Japan, Peru, Poland, the Dominican Republic, Senegal, and Uruguay, and is soon to operate flights to Panama and Algeria, as well as additional flights to Argentina, Ecuador, and Peru, pending approval by the respective governments.
If it receives all the authorisations required, Iberia will make a total of 20 special flights to take some 6,000 people home, including Spaniards stranded abroad, and foreigners in Spain.
Meanwhile, since the state of alarm was declared, Iberia has carried more than 70,000 passengers on regular flights, especially to the US, Mexico, Cuba, Costa Rica, Brazil, and Chile.
