If you’re traveling from the U.S. to Madrid on Iberia, you’ll want to take advantage of Iberia’s VIP Arrivals lounge has opened in T4 Terminal at Adolfo Suarez Madrid-Barajas Airport. This is especially helpful when arriving early in the morning (such as the Iberia flight from Chicago which arrives at 7:40 a.m.) — giving business travelers an opportunity to refresh or rest before a meeting or a connecting flight… or even before heading to the hotel.

The lavishly equipped 665 m² facility is available 24/7 to Iberia Business passengers and holders of Iberia Plus Gold cards arriving on transatlantic flights and others of at least four hours’ duration, such as those from Moscow, Tel Aviv, Dakar, Accra, Lagos, Malabo, and Nouakchott.

Located on level -1 of Terminal 4, near the accesses to the Madrid underground and commuter train access points, the lounge features everything needed to facilitate rest and work, making it one of the world’s best arrivals halls.

The new facility is part of Iberia’s ongoing Ágora project, designed to enhance the efficiency, convenience, and comfort of its T4 hub, which was voted the third best air terminal in the world last year in a worldwide survey by the consulting firm Skytrax.

Exclusive services and advantages, maximum comfort

The rest area is furnished with comfortable sofas, and there are shower booths, a fully-equipped work centre, a buffet serving a variety of hot and cold drinks as well as breakfast and snacks, television rooms, a flight information panel, a place to leave luggage securely, a laundry service, and the latest newspapers and magazines.

Qualified passengers need only show their boarding passes to enter the lounge, and will pay nothing to use these services.

In addition, this space has a total of 22, 18 m² rooms equipped with all sorts of services, which Iberia customers can hire with discounts.

The lounge was designed by GIS Trade Center, the company that manages VIP lounges and business centres at Barcelona’s El Prat airport and the Premium lounge at Madrid-Barajas.
