The heat is on

Making travel plans for summer? Then make sure you’re up to date with Iberia’s newest destinations and routes. We launched Iberia flights to Basel, Switzerland, on 26 March and, from June, Iberia Express will be operating flights to Cardiff, UK, and Cagliari, Sardinia. This summer we’re also restarting flights to the Croatian destinations of Dubrovnik, Zagreb and Split, as well as our flights to Catania, St Petersburg, Budapest, Puerto Rico, Cork, Edinburgh, Reykjavik, Oslo and Santorini. As for long-haul travel, the frequency of our flights to Quito, Medellín, Buenos Aires and Mexico City will also increase, making it even easier to get away and enjoy some sunshine.

More fun on board

Customers travelling in Iberia’s Airbus A319 sub-fleet – which usually flies to Moscow, Stockholm, Tel Aviv and Malabo, along with St Petersburg in the summer – can enjoy a new in-flight entertainment model, Gogo Entertainment. Install Gogo Entertainment app, then connect via the ‘Iberia_Entertainment’ WiFi, to view fims, TV series and more. It’s accessible to all, and free for Business travellers.

Class act

Iberia is launching a new travel class, Premium Economy, which will be gradually incorporated into our A340-600 and A330-300 aircraft. Premium Economy offers exclusive seats that are wider and recline further than in Economy, plus noise-cancelling earphones, entertainment on HD screens that are 33 per cent larger than those in Economy, and more. Customers can also enjoy priority boarding, two checked suitcases and other advantages. Premium Economy is on sale now, for select flights starting from May 2017. By summer 2018, it will be available across the network.
