Iberia has announced it will offer its new premium economy class on flights to Havana and Johannesburg, while boosting capacity on Madrid-Lima and Madrid-São Paulo routes.
At the start of the 2019 summer season, Iberia passengers flying to Havana and to Johannesburg may opt for the new class, available on the Airbus A330-300s the airline will operate on these routes.
Iberia’s A330-300s have 29 business class seats, 21 seats in premium economy, and 242 in Economy.
The premium economy cabin s designed for economy class passengers who are willing to pay a little more for a lot more comfort, plus extra services in the air and on the ground.
The cabin features 20 per cent more separation between rows, wider seats, adjustable headrests and reclining footrests, as well as exclusive in-flight services including a complimentary welcoming drink, special menu, table linen, and personalised toilet kit.
In July and August 2019, Iberia will offer ten return flights a week on the Madrid-Lima route, up from the current frequency of one daily flight.
Pending final approval by the authorities, the additional three flights will operate on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays from Madrid, returning on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.
The additional flights will be operated with A340-600s.
Finally, starting in April, Iberia will use Airbus A340-600s for its daily flights between Madrid and São Paulo, replacing the A330-300s being used this summer.
The change of aircraft adds nearly 1,000 more seats each week.
