Here's the link...it's in Spanish, sorry

from ABC newspaper in Spain.

http://www.abc.es/economia/noticia.asp?id=234358&dia=hoy

Apparently it is a new Low cost carrier that will operate both A330-200 and A330-300's from the Iberian peninsula to Latin America. This ought to be a great market to get into due to the large monopoly that IB has and well, a very small minority from Spanair and Air Europa.

Would Laker's Skytrain from the late 70's not count as the first trans-Atlantic LCC?

Oh dear. One 'rule' of no-frills airlines is high aircraft and staff utilisation, i.e. maximising the aircraft and staff usage per day. Aircraft only make money when they're flying, not on the ground, so it's important to fit in as many legs per day as possible. A transatlantic flight - or any flight over, say, 3 or 4 hours - would not enable this high utilisation, thus its costs will be more than a 'true' no-frills airlines. I am guessing that this will be a 'low-cost airline with a difference' (probably including meals, drinks and IFE) and I suspect, based on previous no-frills long-haul airlines, that it'll exist for less than a year. I wish it all the best, though. Let's hope it proves us wrong.

Last month I saw an Iberworld Airbus A330-200 in Bogota Colombia
I was told that Iberworld flew new charters to Colombia at the end of november I think 1/2 or 3 times a week. But i'm not sure of that

Most prob. CCS will be served, Venezuela is an important market for Iberia and Air Europa- the only Venezuelan competition is Santa Barbara so Im sure they can see potential on the CCS route.
