Iberia will give up MIA's hub according to the spanish newspaper "El Mundo".
The newspaper says:"Habrá un nuevo Hub en Centroamérica" (there will be a new hub in CentralAmerica) and "Las fuertes medidas de seguridad ahuyentan a Iberia de EEUU" (the big security's measures in USA frighten away to IB)
Many pax have complain about MIA's hub.
Iberia will seek a new hub in Central America.Cancún,Panamá and Costa Rica are candidates
What do you think about this notice?

One word: great!
Why should they keep Miami as their hub when transit passengers are treated as potential criminals?

I agree. I try and avoid going through the US when going to and from Europe, because I don't like the way I'm treated.

How about HAV as a new hub?  Big grin

I can totally understand. My last visit to MIA airport was so humiliating, that it's no wonder IB decides to close down its hub there.
It's really sad, indeed.

I agree with Stefan.
And to be honest, I think that is the way to go. If a country treats you and your business bad, look for an alternative. I am also pretty sure that a smaller market country will do EVERYTHING that Iberia want.
A smart move if they do it, just sad for the spotters at MIA.

Where have all the tri-jets gone...

Interesting, but I wonder which city will get IB's business if they go forward with this plan... MIA has two advantages, it is centrally located as a door to Latin America and has the benefit of an AA domestic and international hub. Lets see if their new plans work well!!!

This has been discussed a lot of times.

Iberia will not leave MIA, they have more than 12 years here.

And they will not leave this strategic location, for the one world partner and for the great O/D it has from MIA to MAD.

"Cancún,Panamá and Costa Rica" thats a lot of bull... I dont buy that.

These airports cant handle the traffic,

CUN: no space for 5 aircraft at a time only by IB.

SJO: the airport is too small.

PTY: I just dont know how this city came up, Thats why I think this is bull.

This topic has been burned here, and you guys dont get it.

They wont move.

Why should IB care an AA hub when they have their own hub there?
As much as I know there were lots of angry passengers who dislike US hubs and when it's possible to use another hub, they can do. There are much more centrally located places in the caribbean I think.

In my opinion...this latest report is more than anything a scare tactic to the U.S. DOT to improve transit conditions at MIA AP. Moving the HUB to another city just doesnt make sense...there is no the feeder traffic that MIA produces. If you stick the HUB in Cancun for example...you will not get the same amount of feeder traffic to the other central american destination as you would in MIA. IB needs MIA to fill up the seats that are not sold in MAD. Then again...this whole...IB will move thing has been going on for years....who knows how long it could be before anything actually happens.

If customers demand it, IB will do - no doubt.
There are different opportunities, I am sure. And I hope they will do.
It's just a question how people get treated.

All conjecture and heresay Stefandotde.

Please provide hard numbers to show that non-American transit passengers through Miami (and while we are at Houston, Atlanta, et. al.) have fallen because of new rules...

Iberia is going to be hard pressed to find any airport withing 500 miles of Miami that can provide suitable infastructure as well the pax/cargo/connections that Miami provides.

If they close Miami, the might as well serve as many destination nonstop or with tag ons to other flights.

It's a logic move.

A related question:
I'm not a frequent flyer but I've noticed a few things. When flying from A to C via B, where both A & C are non US cities but B is a US city, you have to enter B's country (USA)!!! Why? Is this system used at all international airports in the USA or just a few? What about MIA? Is that system used in any other country?

Unfortunately this system was implemented post 9/11 due to "Terrorist" security concerns. Before 9/11 pax transiting through MIA would go to a transit lounge and wait there until the connecting flight was ready for boarding. Simply the burocracies of this country.

Cuba would be a great hub for them. In view of the future political changes there, by establishing itself in Havana now, IB will be well anchored in the Carribean, could definitely (then) support Cubana, and become a major force, when "things finally change"...

This is my take on possible hubs in Central America.

CUN - Maybe, never been there so no comment

PTY - Small Airport, crowded?

SJO - Probably the biggest destination of all the MAD - Central America Traffic, so it probable. Not sure about airport capacity though. Modern Airport

GUA - Small outdated airport 6 gates total

TGU - No landing after dark

SAP - Small outdated airport

MGA - Small but underused airport?

SAL - Modern Airport, plenty of gates and space available, although most passengers would prob connect to other places like SJO.

I can completely understand why IB would yank MIA as a hub. No airports in the U.S. have sterile concourses that allow foreign pax transiting the country to do so without clearing customs and immigrations. That is a huge waste of time for people that are only going to be in the country to change aircraft.
