The Spanish airline Iberia, leader in the routes linking Europe with Latin America, presented on Monday a project that will highlight the different cultural forms of the Western Hemisphere through music, in which Panama is the first country to record its documentary.
"Volando Tour" is a tour that will tour Latin America and the United States in the hands of Spanish producer Javier Limón, who composed the song of the same name, reported the company that focused on the launch within the framework of the 500 years of foundation of the Oldest city in the American Pacific.
The song "Volando", performed as a tribute to his new Airbus A350 aircraft, is a song of optimism performed by people from various destinations where Iberia flies and a mix of the most varied musical styles, from the rhythm of the Brazilian batucada to a choir Balkan, with the common denominator of transmitting illusion.
The CEO of Iberia, Luis Gallego, said that the tour to record the documentary – which will later be screened on the aircraft – starts in Panama, and then will tour the cities of Boston, New York, Havana, Mexico and even Tokyo.
The scenario chosen in the Central American nation will be the Amador Theater in Panama, where the Venezuelan singer Nella -principal interpreter of the song- will share stage with the Panamanians Iván Barrios, the Afrodisiac group and Jackie Plummer.
In addition, the representative of Iberia said that Panama is a hub that allows the Spanish airline to offer connection to Costa Rica, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Honduras and El Salvador through codeshare operated flights with other airlines in the region.
In an interview with Efe Gallego said that the company had an operating profit of "437 million euros (492 million dollars) last year", a situation that contrasts with the results presented in 2012, when he lost "one million euros (1.13 million dollars) a day. "
