Flights between Madrid and Havana, which were suspended nearly two years ago, are to return. Starting on 1 June, Iberia will operate on Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
The airline also announced the launch of a new route from Madrid to the Colombian cities of Cali and Medellin, where Iberia has never flown before. The triangular Madrid – Medellin – Cali – Madrid flights will begin on 3 July, and operate on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
On both routes the Spanish airline will use its new Airbus A330s equipped with all new interiors, including Business Class seats that unfold into flat beds nearly two metres long and with direct access to the aisle; roomier seats in Economy; entertainment on demand from touch screens in both seating classes, plus wi-fi and GSM connectivity.
The new direct flights from Madrid are timed for good connections at Iberia’s T4 hub to/from its more than 80 destinations in Spain and the rest of Europe.
These additional destinations raise to 23 the number of routes resumed or launched by Iberia in the past year, since agreements were reached with employee unions on cost reductions and productivity hikes last February and March, and the implementation of Iberia’s Future Plan.
Virgin Atlantic offers a twice weekly non-stop service from Gatwick. www.iberia.com
