Buy Iberia Flights with Alternative Airlines

Iberia is the largest flag carrier in Spain and is part of the International Airlines Group (IAG). Iberia continues to operate under its brand flying to many destinations and is also the parent company for Iberia Express, which commenced operations in 2012.

In addition to IAG, Iberia has codeshare agreements with Air Berlin, American Airlines, Avianca, Bulgaria Air, Copa Airlines, Czech Airlines, Royal Jordanian, Boliviana De AviacionFinnairEl Al and S7 Airlines.

All of the aircraft in the fleet are configured in a two-class layout with Business and Economy cabins. Iberia was one of the last remaining major airlines that equipped all of its intercontinental routes with PTVs. As of 2016, Iberia has its A330 (200-300) fleet with IFE installed as well as the A340-600 fleet.

In March 2009 Iberia announced that from 2009 to 2011 it would renovate its economy class on all its planes as well as design a new business class for its long haul planes. Iberia offers Business Class, Business Club, Business Plus and Economy Class. Iberia has a 9.49% stake in low-cost carrier Vueling which is based near Barcelona, with parent company IAG owning the remaining 90.51%. This was done to ensure that IAG does not have 100% of the shares in Vueling, but that the shares are split between its divisions.

Iberia also has a 0.95% share in Royal Air Maroc. British Airways' sister airline, Level, is offering transatlantic fares dramatically lower than rivals. Flights are operated by the Spanish airline Iberia on behalf of Level. In 2006, Iberia provided funds to help set up the airline Catair, now known as Clickair, in return for a share in the company. However, Clickair was merged with Vueling in 2009.
