Iberia offers more than 1,400 extra seats to Seville
Thursday 28, April 2011
On the occasion of the week-long annual April fair, Iberia has added 1,400 seats (700 in each direction) to its normal capacity between Madrid and the Andalusian city, in the May 1-10 period.
The airline will operate up to five daily return flights between the two cities in this period, for a total of some 7,200 seats in each direction.
Aside from the flights from Madrid, Iberia flies non-stop to Seville from the airports of Asturias, Vigo, Bilbao, Almeria, Alicante, Valencia, and the French city of Toulouse. By way of Madrid, Iberia passengers can reach Seville from any of more than 200 cities around the world, and from 109 of them in Iberia aircraft. These include 35 cities in Spain, 36 in the rest of Europe, 11 in Africa and the Middle East, 26 in America, and almost every capital city of Latin America. Passengers from these cities can fly to Seville with a single ticket, with assistance at every station.
The airline also offers flights to 181 destinations through code sharing with other carriers. In addition, its subsidiary Vueling flies non-stop to Seville from Barcelona, Corunna, Bilbao, Ibiza, Gran Canaria, and Tenerife, and also from Amsterdam, London, and Paris.
Iberia has flown to Seville since August 16, 1937, on its Vitoria-Burgos-Salamanca-Cáceres-Seville-Tetuan route, and in April 13, 1939 it began regular Seville flights from Madrid.
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.
