Iberia is gradually resuming its international air network and this week confirmed the return of the flight between Madrid and Rio de Janeiro.
The route will operate three times a week between October 30 and March 25, 2023, during the winter season in the Northern Hemisphere.
The aircraft scheduled for the flight is the Airbus A330-200, with 288 seats. Flights depart from the Spanish capital on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays at 12:05 pm, landing in Rio de Janeiro at 6:55 pm (local time). The return takes place on the same day, with departure at 8:20 pm and arrival in Madrid at 10:30 am the following day.
“It is true that we still haven’t recovered the capacity we offered before the pandemic, but it gives us immense joy to recover our flights to Rio de Janeiro and we continue to work with the same commitment and enthusiasm that we have shown over these 76 years since our first flight” , said Maria Jesús López Solás, Iberia’s Commercial Director.
Currently, Iberia flies daily between Madrid and São Paulo with the A330-300 configured for 292 seats in three classes. In South America, the Spanish carrier also flies to Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Santiago, Lima, Quito, Guayaquil and Bogota.
