Flights to Spain will be easier to come by next May thanks to a new route from Iberia.
Beginning May 1, 2020, Iberia will operate up to five weekly Washington (IAD)–Madrid (MAD) flights. The flights accommodate 29 business-class seats, 21 premium-economy seats and 242 economy seats. Throughout the inaugural summer, the route will serve 68,000 seats.
The new route is the latest in a long tradition of service to the United States from Iberia. The airline began in 1954, and now operates 84 return flights per week.

Iberia offers connections to 32 Spanish destinations and 68 European ones through Madrid.
