90 years ago

On 14 December, 1927 Iberia flew for the first time from Barcelona to Madrid. A Rohrback Roland three-engine aircraft with capacity for 10 passengers and wicker seats took off from the Cuatro Vientos airfield to the capital city, where the opening ceremony took place. The trip took three and a half hours and the fare was 163 pesetas for one-way tickets and 300 pesetas for round trip. During the first month of activity, the airline made 57 flights and transported 287 passengers.

And today...

In 95 years, nearly 900 million customers have flown with Iberia and have helped make it the leading airline for routes between Europe and Latin America. Along with Iberia Express and Iberia Regional Air Nostrum, the company offers around 600 flights a day to fifty countries in Europe, America, Africa, Middle East and Asia, with a fleet of 135 aircraft. In 2016 Iberia was the most punctual airline in the world.
