As Iberia celebrates the 60th anniversary of its first scheduled services to South America the airline has widened its lead over Air France-KLM, its main competitor on the Europe-Latin America sector.
In July Iberia posted an 18.8% market share on these routes, 1.3 points above that of its French-Dutch rival.
The largest growth was recorded on South Atlantic routes connecting Spain with Chile, Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay.

Today, six decades after launching its first regular flights to Buenos Aires, Iberia offers more Latin American destinations than any other airline, making 236 return flights each week, most of them non-stop, to 17 Latin American cities, with another 26 destinations under code-sharing arrangements with other carriers.
