Iberia is to resume flights to Johannesburg, starting next August.
With this route, the airline has resumed all flights it left to restructure its business in 2013.
“When we presented our transformation plan, we said that we intended to resume all flights we needed to stop at that time,” recalled Luis Gallego, Iberia chairman.
“Thanks to the efforts made by all employees to reduce our cost base and thanks to our new fleet, more fuel-efficient, we can now resume the route to Johannesburg, which will be profitable and sustainable.”
Iberia will fly to Johannesburg three times a week, on Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays, and return on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
It will use new Airbus A330-300s, with 36 seats in business and 242 in economy.
