Iberia’s Premium Economy

Five A340-600 aircraft fitted with a new Premium Economy seating section will be in service with Iberia this summer after the airline revealed the first at a special ceremony last week.

Iberia Maintenance will install the new seats on the aircraft already in the fleet at its Madrid hangars, while the A350s the airline has on order will come factory-equipped with the new seating section. 

Chief commercial officer Marco Sansavini said: “For us this aircraft shows how an exciting project takes shape. We are certain in Europe, the US and our other destinations there are customers willing to pay a little more to fly more comfortably.”

Iberia’s Premium Economy class will be available starting next month on flights to and from Chicago, New York and Bogota, in June on flights to and from Mexico, in July on flights between Madrid and Miami, and in August on flights to and from Boston.

By the 2018 summer season, it will be available on aircraft on all Iberia’s long-haul routes operating A340-600s and A330-300s, as well as the A350s joining the fleet starting next year.
