Iberia celebrates 20th anniversary of Madrid - Berlin route with a special flight offer on Twitter and Facebook


50 EUR discount to those customers who buy its tickets between Spain and Berlin on Iberia’s Twitter and Facebook sites.


This year Iberia is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its Madrid-Berlin route, launched in 1991. It started offering two weekly flights with MD87 aircraft, though it doubled the number of frequencies to four a week in summer 1991. Two decades later, Iberia makes three daily return flights, using Airbus A320s, and is the sole network airline to fly non-stop between the two cities.


The flights are scheduled to provide passengers boarding at Tegel airport in Germany or Madrid-Barajas in Spain with easy connections to/from Iberia's 35 Spanish destinations, Lisbon and Oporto in Portugal, 21 Latin American cities, four United States destinations, and nine in Africa.


In 2010 Iberia carried more that 262,000 people between the two cities, of whom 51.1% had connecting flights. The favourite destinations of passengers from Berlin were Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura, and Lanzarote in Spain's Canary Islands, while Buenos Aires, Havana, or San José in Costa Rica were Iberia’s favourite long haul destinations.


To mark the anniversary, Iberia is offering a 25% discount on flights between Madrid and Berlin that are purchased with Iberia Plus points. The special offer will remain valid until April 30th. In addition, customers buying their flight tickets between Spain and Berlin on Iberia’s Twitter and Facebook sites from March 15th until March 16th will get a discount of 50 EUR for flights between March 25th and June 25th.


Iberia also serves the German cities of Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, and Munich, and operates a total of 170 return flights between Spain and Germany each week.
