 IBERIA LAUNCHES FLIGHTS TO CANCUN FROM MIAMI HUB;
 FIFTH FREEDOM RIGHTS EXPAND TRI-CONTINENTAL ROUTES
 MIAMI, April 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Iberia Airlines of Spain will initiate flights to Cancun, Mexico beginning May 15 from its Miami hub, it was announced today by Nicolas Canto de Andres, Iberia's vice president and general manager for the U.S.A. and Canada.
 This tri-continental route expansion, granted by the Fifth Freedom Rights treaty signed by the U.S. and Spanish governments in May 1991, makes Iberia the only European airline carrier permitted to pick up passengers on U.S. soil, and continue on to its final destination in Latin America.
 Seven weekly flights will be available between Miami and Cancun. To service this route Iberia has modified 110-seater DC-9 planes, transforming them into 92-seaters providing enhanced passenger comfort.
 As part of its Latin American route expansion, Iberia is adding three weekly flights Madrid-Miami-Guatemala, in 250-seater DC-10s.
 Currently Iberia services Spain and beyond from three U.S. gateways: Miami, Los Angeles and New York. The carrier is establishing a gateway center at Miami International Airport to expand its operation with that of its South American partners, Aerolineas Argentinas, LADECO of Chile and VIASA of Venezuela.
