Iberia Express

Iberia Express is an airline based in Madrid, which operates short and medium-haul flights. The airline, which recently celebrated its five year anniversary, began operations in March 2012 and has since established itself as the most punctual airline at Madrid’s Barajas airport, as well as one of the leading carriers in Europe, with an average punctuality rate of 95% so far this year.

Through Iberia Express, the Iberia Group can offer its customers more affordable flights with the same quality of service and customer experience as Spain’s leading airline. Customers enjoy the same advantages as they do when flying with Iberia: flights to major airports, the Iberia Plus program, VIP lounges, exceptional service onboard and business class seating. Not to mention connections to over 100 destinations and an excellent safety record courtesy of Iberia’s world-leading maintenance service.

At present, Iberia Express flies to 40 destinations, including 14 within Spain and 26 abroad. They include Berlin, Copenhagen, Dublin, Amsterdam, Paris, Naples, Santiago de Compostela and both the Canary and Balearic Islands. All flights operate via Madrid’s Adolfo-Suárez Barajas Airport, apart from those between Tenerife – Lyon, Gran Canaria – London Heathrow and Palma de Mallorca – Stuttgart, among many others.

Throughout 2016 Iberia Express gradually added more European cities to its roster, such as Birmingham, Cork, Bordeaux and Krakow. For summer 2017, three new routes have been incorporated, to Crete, Cagliari and Cardiff, to meet the demand for flights to holiday destinations within Europe.
