The Spanish airline Wamos Air, formerly Pullmantur Air, has announced that it will “consolidate its position” as a company specializing in charter flights, cargo and wet charter (the provision of a service by a company which lends its planes and crews on routes whose rights and marketing are the responsibility of others).
In this regard, the company has announced that it has reached an agreement under which Iberojet will operate its routes to Cancún (CUN) and Punta Cana (PUJ) from June 18. “The aforementioned commitment was signed in the adaptation of the two companies to the current market circumstances, after the situation generated by the pandemic and by virtue of the consolidation of Wamos Air as a leader in its segment”, they assured .
Enrique Saiz, CEO of Wamos Air, said: “This step represents an important step forward in our corporate strategy to continue to strengthen the wet charter and cargo businesses, and thus consolidate our position in these markets.”
On the other hand, the executive also highlighted the gradual ramp-up of operations observed in recent months and assured that they intend to continue to be “a reference” in the segment.

Both airlines are part of tourism groups specializing in the leisure travel markets. Leasing aircraft, crew, insurance and maintenance for both routes to the Caribbean will allow both airlines to take advantage of the summer season, one of the busiest travel seasons of the year.
Wamos Air is Spain’s third largest airline in terms of long-haul operations, behind Iberia and Air Europa. According to the company, it has the capacity to carry up to three million passengers per year. It operated Boeing 747-400s until 2020, when four-engine aircraft began to be phased out of the fleet. It currently has four Airbus A330-200s and five Airbus A330-300s.
