Iberia to Relaunch Direct Madrid-Johannesburg Service
Iberia will launch a thrice-weekly service between Madrid and Johannesburg next August.
The Spanish carrier last flew on the route in 2013, when it suspended service to "restructure its business".
Business Traveller reports that the carrier will restart operations on the route on August 1 with a two-class A330-300, with 36 seats in business and 242 in economy.
Outbound flights will operate on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays - IB6051 will depart Madrid at 2345 and arrive in Johannesburg at 1010 the next day. Return legs will depart on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays - IB6050 will leave Johannesburg at 2015 and land in Madrid at 0635 the next day.
Johannesburg is Iberia's 11th destination in Africa, joining Luanda, Algiers, Oran, Accra, Malabo, Casablanca, Marrakech, Tangier, Lagos, and Dakar.
