Iberia Express has picked up the Iberia Group’s connection between Madrid and Berlin with its first flight – with 100% load – on the route on 27 October.
Paloma Utrera, Iberia Express sales manager, emphasised the importance the opening of this new route represents for the carrier. "Berlin is a destination that has always been operated by the Iberia Group and we are very pleased that our competitive prices enable us to recover this route." Utrera noted that through this route passengers will have links to Iberia’s long-haul destinations, such as Santiago de Chile, Sao Paulo, Mexico City and Buenos Aires.
Iberia Express will operate three times a week during the entire winter season. It will fly from both cities on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.
