Iberia to launch non-stop flights between Barcelona and Sao Paulo

With Singapore Airways due to launch a three times weekly non-stop service to Barcelona today (Monday 28 March), Iberia has bit back with a similar operation, but twice weekly.  Passengers will be able to connect both ways with Iberia Regional, Air Nostrum and Vueling flights.

Two-class Airbus A340s are to be operated on the route featuring Business Plus, Iberia's new long haul executive class with seats that convert into a totally horizontal bed.  Iberia also serves Sao Paulo twice daily from Madrid, as well as a daily frequency from Rio de Janeiro to the Spanish capital.  Since 1 February the Spanish airline also links Fortaleza and Recife with Madrid three times a week.

With the new routes Brazil has become Iberia's most important Latin American destination, with nearly 30 flights each week an increase of 28%, the highest growth in Iberia’s network.  In 2010, almost 500,000 passengers flew with Iberia between Brazil and Spain.
