The flying times are intended to facilitate connections at Iberia’s T4 hub in Madrid-Barajas airport to/from the Spanish airline’s 70-plus destinations in Spain, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. The T4 was found to be the world’s third best airport in a Skytrax survey of more than 12 million passengers in some 400 airports around the world.

Most Chicago-Madrid flights are already using Iberia’s new Airbus A330, which emit 15% less CO2 than the aircraft they replace, and are equipped with all-new cabin interiors, seats and individual entertainment systems in both Business and Economy.

Business travelers can stretch out in completely flat beds nearly two metres long, and use their individual 15” touch screens to enjoy a huge variety of entertainment options including 50 late-release films in several languages, 80 popular television series, 400 music CDs, video games, etc. Economy class seats are larger and more comfortable, and features 9” touch screens giving access to the full offering of entertainment options, including a special children’s programme.

The new cabins will also be available for customers flying between Boston and Madrid, a route that Iberia resumes as of April and that will offer a daily frequency in July. Also, in April Iberia will resume flights to Los Angeles, with three frequencies, that will increase to four in July and August; this route will be served by the A340 – some of the A340 fleet have already been refitted with the new cabins.

Iberia also flies to Miami and New York in the United States, using the new A330s for most flights. It operates two daily flights to Miami all year round and in July and August it will make up to three daily flights from New York to Madrid.
