What Is Iberia’s Growth Strategy In The United States? The United States is Iberia’s main market overseas, and it is the focus of our growth for 2011. This year, we will offer almost 1.2 million seats between Europe and the United States, which is a quarter of our long-haul capacity. This represents a growth of 13 percent compared to 2010 in terms of available seats. Part of this growth comes from the opening of two new routes in late March — Los Angeles–Madrid and Miami–Barcelona, with three weekly flights each — and from increased capacity to Madrid from our existing gateways in New York, Chicago, Boston and Miami. Iberia offers an extensive network in Spain (37 destinations), Europe (38 cities), Africa and the Middle East.

The Island of the Knights

Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
