American Airlines, a trans-Atlantic joint business partner with Iberia and British Airways, will expand its operations at Miami International Airport (MIA) with the launch of Miami - Barcelona (BCN) service on April 3. The flight will operate five times a week until June 14, when it will operate daily.
As part of a joint business reorganization of flights, Iberia will increase its Miami to Madrid service as it grows its presence at Madrid's Barajas Airport (MAD). Effective March 25 Iberia will add a second MIA-MAD flight four times per week. American will continue to operate one daily MIA-MAD flight.
American's new route connects its Miami hub to Barcelona's El Prat International Airport. Barcelona is one of Europe's top tourist destinations, as well as a city with a thriving business community. The new flight will complement American's existing service from JFK in New York.
