LEVEL, part of the International Airlines Group, has revealed an expansion for its transatlantic network in preparation to meet upcoming demand.
One of LEVEL’s most significant announcements comes in the form of an inaugural flight towards Miami from Barcelona slated to begin on the 31st of March 2024, marking a new destination for the airline.
However, the low-cost carrier based in Spain will also expand its services to other destinations as soon as 28 October 2023 in preparation for the winter season.
Notably, Santiago de Chile, alongside Buenos Aires, will have their respective services increased; Santiago will grow to five flights per week, with Buenos Aires rising towards nine per week from their home in Barcelona.
LEVEL operates with a fleet of five Airbus A330s split between the A330-200 and A330-300. It was established in 2017 with a bid to offer low-cost transatlantic operations.
While at the time a lucrative market, it has sometimes been challenging for companies to sustain low-cost operations with so much competition from legacy carriers. The backing of the International Airlines Group, home to Iberia, British Airways and Aer Lingus, has undoubtedly aided LEVEL.
Overall, though, the transatlantic expansion will be made possible thanks to more Airbus A330s being readily made available, despite being registered by Iberia, also under IAG.
