Iberia woos UK traffic

Passengers from the UK heading for Uruguay and Japan are being targeted by Iberia with new services which the Spanish airline says offer easy connections and more capacity at time of peak demand.

The carrier says it is now offering more flights from the UK to Uruguay after boosting capacity on its Madrid – Montevideo route by 18% this year to 151,000 seats, adding two weekly frequencies and converting the schedule to daily.

The Montevideo flights are timed to offer easy connections for passengers flying from five British airports – Birmingham, Gatwick, Heathrow, Manchester and Edinburgh – with a total of 165 flights every week to Madrid.

Meanwhile, Iberia is increasing frequency on its Madrid – Tokyo Narita route next year reflecting a growth in business traffic and in time for the Summer Olympics. The airline currently flies five times a week between the two cities.

From 29 March 2020, Iberia will replace the existing A330-200 service with its new Airbus A350-900, increasing the size of Business Class cabin from 19 to 31 seats and adding 24 Premium Economy seats.

From 17 June 2020, it will add an additional two Tokyo flights a week, operating on Tuesdays and Wednesdays outbound and Wednesday and Thursdays inbound, making it a daily service.
