Iberia Dubs Aircraft “Puerto Rico” to Mark Return to Island

SAN JUAN – Spanish airline Iberia will christen one of its newest planes “Puerto Rico” to celebrate this month’s resumption of direct flights from Madrid to San Juan.

“For us, this month is Puerto Rico month,” CEO Luis Gallego said in the May edition of Ronda Iberia, the carrier’s in-flight magazine.

“On May 15, we resume direct flights from Spain, after a brief three-year interruption due to the reorganization of the company,” he said. “We return with even greater hope, if possible, to an island that has it all: nature, culture, cuisine ... and we do it with the most modern aircraft in our fleet, the A330-200.”

“We will christen one of these aircraft with the name of Puerto Rico,” Gallego said, adding that the return to the island coincides with the 70th anniversary of the launch of Iberia’s service between Europe and Latin America.

The government of Puerto Rico has estimated that Iberia’s return will contribute roughly $21 million a year to the island’s battered economy.
