Iberia no longer flies between Sur Sofia and CCS
. They Dropped it early last year. I don't know that there's so much traffic to warrant two airlines flying the route. One flight is probably enough, maybe two but with smaller 757 type equipment. SB
Airlines has reported that in 2003, they transported approximately 20,000 passengers (round trip), which is roughly (estimated guess) about 205 passenger per weekly flight (Guess!). For the month of December, SB
Airlines will increase the flight to two a week to respond to the higher demand that is generally associated with the ethnic market, such as this route.
So happy to hear that Air Madrid will start serving Bolivia. Apparently, IB
just doesn't have enough planes to start developing new destinations. Very good news for the Bolivian community living in Spain, which according to some estimates numbers 50,000. However, I hope that this put preasure on LAB to add frequencies to their weekly MAD
flight and to perhaps add service to Ecuador via its new partner Ecuatoriana de Aviacion.
