The flights between EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg and Madrid will be operated with aircraft from the A320 family, which can accommodate between 122 and 200 passengers. The flight schedule allows convenient connecting flights to many of Iberia’s Spanish destinations, such as Alicante, Bilbao, Malaga, Palma de Majorca, and Seville, to Lisbon in Portugal, and to long-haul destinations such as Buenos Aires, Mexico City, Montevideo, Santiago de Chile, São Paulo, and Johannesburg.

Iberia is the world’s second most punctual international carrier according to Flightstats and is currently renewing its long-haul fleet with new aircraft and has also refurbished its A340-600 planes to offer its new cabins on all its long-haul commercial flights.

Matthias Suhr, CEO of EuroAirport, commented, “We are very excited about the new flights with Iberia, a completely new airline at EuroAirport with a full service offering for business and economy passengers alike. This route also adds a new hub to our existing route network with the possibility of travelling further to interesting domestic and intercontinental destinations. In addition, as a member of the IAG Group, Iberia strengthens the presence of oneworld alliance members at EuroAirport alongside Air Berlin, British Airways and Vueling.

Celia Muñoz, Iberia’s Head of Sales for Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia, said “With this new route we improve the flight offer from the area served by EuroAirport. Our route to Madrid and connecting flights to the rest of Spain, Portugal, Africa and Latin America will be very appealing to both holiday and business travellers, such as those associated with the pharmaceutical and other industries located in or near Basel”.

Basel is Iberia’s third Swiss destination. Nearly 60,000 seats will be available on the airline’s Madrid-Basel route in 2017.
