Iberia will offer direct flights to Manchester and Glasgow, operated by its franchise partner Iberia Regional Air Nostrum, from October.
Both routes will be used for point-to-point traffic between Madrid and these cities, as well as to provide traffic to Iberia’s long-haul network, which is especially significant in Manchester, the second largest city in the United Kingdom, and an important financial and cultural center.
The Manchester flights will begin on October 30, and will operate daily, while the Glasgow service will operate twice weekly, starting on November 1.
In addition, also for the winter season, Iberia will continue its partnership with Vueling, which began in time for the summer season, in such a way that the latter will continue to operate flights in code share with Iberia from Madrid to several European destinations. In the case of Barcelona, all Vueling flights will maintain the shared code with Iberia, increasing traffic in the city’s long-haul network. Iberia, for its part, has decided to reinforce its brand in Spain, and will therefore resume its operations at Spanish airports where it had stopped operating in the summer, such as Majorca, Fuerteventura, Lanzarote, Pamplona and San Sebastian, as well as Santander, where it has not operated its own flights for a decade.
