Iberia offers five news Russian destinations under code-shares with S7
Tuesday 16, November 2010
Iberia customers can now fly to five additional destinations in Russia (Rostov, Kazan, Samara, Krasnodar and Perm) thanks to a new code-share arrangement with S7. Flights to the cities all have easy connections with Iberia's 11 weekly Madrid-Moscow flights.
In the first ten months of 2010 Iberia has carried nearly 132,000 passengers between Spain and Moscow, a 4.1% increase from the same period of last year. The load factor also climbed by 4.6 points in the period, reaching 84.2%.
Noteworthy among improvements made on Iberia flights to Moscow was the launch in October of the 14-seat Business Club section, with 1.27 metres between rows, new extra-large (55 cm) lounge seats, and a new in-flight entertainment system based on a Play Station Portable with an LCD screen. Food service was designed by Spanish master chef Sergi Arola, and exquisite wines are chosen by the consulting firm Todovino. The Business Club class is also available on Iberia's flights to Cairo, Lagos, Malabo and Tel Aviv.
The Russian airline S7 has joined today, as a full member, the oneworld alliance, of which Iberia has been a member since 1999 along with American Airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Finnair, JAL, LAN, Malev, Mexicana, Qantas and Royal Jordanian.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
