Iberia Airlines Expands In Puerto Rico

 


The Government of Puerto Rico and Iberia Airlines have come to an agreement to expand the Spanish Airline route from Madrid to San Juan.  Iberia will be increasing their flights from Madrid to San Juan, the most flights in two decades.



In 2022, Iberia Airlines had great demand for flights from Madrid to San Juan, and believe the demand will continue in 2023 and beyond.  Iberia Airlines is seeing great interest in tourism to Puerto Rico from the Spanish and European markets.  



The Puerto Rico Tourism Company also sees this as an opportunity to expand tourism promotion of Puerto Rico in Spain and European markets.  A digital campaign, including social media, will be used to promote Puerto Rico in these markets.

Hurricane Fiona Hits Puerto Rico

Hurricane Fiona hit Puerto Rico on the anniversary of Hurricane Maria, which devastated the island five yeas ago.   Hurricane Fiona entered Puerto Rico from the south, to southwest and exited northwest of the island.   Hurricane Fiona brought unrelenting rain, more than 30 inches in the south area, and horrible flash floods to Puerto Rico.  The most damage took place on the south and southwest towns of Puerto Rico.   Puerto Rico was again, left without power island wide and to this date around 300,000 residents are still without power.   Luma Energy is working around the clock to restore power but the energy company has taken much criticism for not restoring power sooner, especially to areas of the island that were spared the worst from Hurricane Fiona.


At least 1,000 people had to be rescued when streets became rivers.   Three people died and 2 were injured in accidents related to the power outage. The Governor of Puerto Rico estimated the damage cost from Hurricane Fiona will be in the billions.


If you had plans to spend time in Puerto Rico, within the next few weeks, make sure to call your hotel in the area you are visiting to make sure the power has been fully restored.  Also be aware that some attractions might be closed, as the cleanup takes place.
