The Maldives Islands emerge as Iberia’s favorite destination for those who want to land in one of the least populated and least exploited Asian paradises in the world. Nearly 2,000 small islands of which only 200 are populated. Just to fly over its coral atolls in the Indian Ocean, unique in the world, it is already worth going there. Its fine sandy beaches, its crystal clear waters and its impressive and colorful seabed make the Maldives islands much more than a pretty postcard. It’s the perfect adventure to enjoy an aquatic treasure and live unique experiences alongside manta rays, sea turtles, whale sharks and a wide variety of tropical fish. With the Maldives Islands, where it will fly three times a week, the company will add this summer 114 destinations and 24 long-distance destinations concentrated, above all, in America.
Make the Americas in its broadest and most extensive sense: from Chicago to Los Angeles, via Cali, Cancun, San Juan de Puerto Rico or Sao Paulo. Cross the pond, definitely. An adventure which, unlike those Indians who tried their luck in the New World at the beginning of the last century -and who took months to get there- is now more than ever within reach thanks to Iberia.
Specifically, this summer the airline will offer more than 90 weekly frequencies with 18 destinations in 16 Latin American countries, a unique route offer that also coincides with its 75 years of flying to the continent.
A vast network of connections that confirms Iberia as the natural non-stop bridge between America and Europe.

Iberia will add three weekly frequencies with San Juan de Puerto Rico, one of the jewels of the Caribbean and an essential destination for those who want to discover the land where the piña colada is an art. Get lost in the narrow, cobbled streets of old San Juan, its squares and majestic fortifications -such as the fort of San Felipe del Morro or the castle of San Cristóbal-, or the magnificent cemetery of Santa María Magdalena de Pazzi facing the Atlantic Ocean are mandatory stops for the traveler. The same goes for its “natural wonder”, the forest of El Yunque, and its Instagrammed luminescent bays. All to a certain rhythm, ‘Despacito’, marked by the now considered national anthem – which is, yes, global in scope – which has put the La Perla district at the forefront of its tourist circuit.
Also lapped by Caribbean waters, Cancun resonates as another one of the surefire summer destinations. Getting lost along the emblematic and kilometric Playa del Carmen, diving in its unfathomable turquoise cenotes, discovering the Mayan ruins of Tulum or the reefs of Cozumel, among other wonders, is possible thanks to the new route that LEVEL opens in the summer season and which will connect Cancun to Barcelona from July 2. Itinerary that is added to those that the company low cost Iberia already has with Buenos Aires, New York (from July 2) and San Francisco (from June 30).

Los Angeles is another of the routes in the United States that Iberia will operate this summer – along with Boston, Chicago, Miami and New York -. A cinematic destination at your fingertips for those who want to sunbathe under the watchful eye of their “baywatches” at Venice Beach, imitate the footsteps of Julia Roberts on Rodeo Drive and watch, as is mandatory these months, the stars – why what not? – at the Griffith Observatory.
For those who want to get lost in another vast territory, urban but with an undeniable surfer character, Los Angeles has no rival.
Already on the old continent, Croatia remains the bet of Iberia with flights to four destinations: Dubrovnik, Split, Zadar and Zagreb. Hand in hand, Portugal and Greece compete to conquer the traveler in search of landscapes, hidden coves and history in the same destination, highlighting this last Corfu -one of the summer routes that Iberia recovers in Europe – and the classic “sun and beaches” destinations operated by Iberia Express such as Heraklion, Mikonos, Santorini, Bari, Palermo, Cagliari, Zadar and Malta (which is also launching a new route to Kefalonia).
