Iberia has entered the winter travel season with a program of flights and services that can contribute to the economic recovery and the return to normality in a safe environment.

Together, Iberia Group airlines (Iberia, Iberia Express, and Iberia Regional Air Nostrum) will offer flights to more than 75 destinations in 30 countries in Europe, America, and Africa, representing about 70% of the airports it normally serves in winter. The airline group will offer nearly 700 direct return flights in December (some 1,400 flights in all) from its Madrid hub to its network destinations, representing around 40% of 2019 capacity measured in ASKs.

In addition to these flights, the Iberia Regional Air Nostrum and Iberia Express units will operate point-to-point on the Spanish mainland and to and among the Balearic and Canary Islands.

While flight frequencies remain below normal, this winter’s flight program is designed to facilitate same-day return flights for business travelers between key Spanish and European destinations. On 80% of domestic routes and the busiest 32% of European routes, there will be at least two return flights every day.

Flights to São Paulo were resumed at the end of October, and those to Rio de Janeiro, Medellin, and Cali will begin in December. Flights to Caracas are pending the reopening of Venezuela airspace. This means Iberia will be operating scheduled or special flights to a total of 20 destinations in 16 Latin American countries and the USA.


Madrid-Barcelona Shuttle to Double

Starting on 16 November, the Puente Aéreo walk-on shuttle service between Madrid Barcelona will be expanded from the current 24 return flights per week to 43 flights, or an average of seven each day. Puente Aéreo customers will enjoy the dedicated spaces and facilities to make this a fast and convenient service.

Statement from Iberia Group Executive Chairman Javier Sánchez-Prieto:

“At Iberia we believe strongly that recovery is possible, and we plan to do our part. We are eager to help our customers reactivate their businesses and other activities, and to this end we are returning this season with more flights, more destinations, and all the services our customers have come to expect from us. Airlines are proving that health and safety, which remain our highest priority, are perfectly compatible with connectivity and the services that improve the air travel experience, while also helping to drive economic activity.”

"It is our wish that, as always and especially in difficult times, Iberia will continue to be a trusted airline."
