The Iberia Group has revealed it will launch non-stop flights from London to Majorca and to Gran Canaria and in the Canary Islands through its subsidiary Iberia Express.
At the start of the summer season the Spanish carrier will operate one daily flight to Palma, Majorca from Palma de Mallorca.
The carrier will fly to Las Palmas, Gran Canaria on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from London Heathrow, and to Tenerife on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, offering British holidaymakers more options for reaching the sunshine and beaches of their favourite islands.
Majorca, the largest of the Balearic Islands, is well known for its beaches, but also for its greenery and abrupt landscapes.
The Mediterranean island’s many harbours are a Mecca for European pleasure craft during the summer months.
Tenerife, British travellers can reach Spain’s Canary Islands in the Atlantic in less than four and a half hours from Heathrow.
The new flights from London-Heathrow Terminal 5 will be offered under code-sharing with British Airways.
Members of BA’s Executive Club and of Iberia Plus can earn and spend Avios on these flights.
Iberia Express is a subsidiary of the Iberia Group which, like British Airways and Spain’s Barcelona-based Vueling, belongs to the IAG airline group.
Between them, Iberia and British Airways operate a total of 400 flights a week between the UK and Spain.
In addition to the new flights to the Spanish islands, this year Iberia Express will launch Edinburgh-Madrid and Manchester-Madrid services.
