With Qatar Airways and British Airways already operating the world’s largest airline joint business across 60 countries, Iberia’s addition to the partnership further enhances its capabilities.
Iberia Join Hands with British and Qatar Airways
Starting in July, Iberia will introduce a daily service from Madrid Barajas International Airport to Hamad International Airport, connecting passengers to over 200 destinations through the three airlines.
The expanded service, comprising three daily flights, will significantly improve connectivity between the Iberian Peninsula and key markets in the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and Australia.
Iberia’s Airbus A330-200, offering 288 seats in Business and Economy cabins, will facilitate this improved connectivity.
Customers will now have more choices than ever before, ranging from various destinations, flight schedules, and fares to seamless connectivity via Doha, London, and Madrid.
Additionally, travelers can take advantage of a broader selection of award-winning products, including Qatar Airways’ Qsuite, Iberia’s Business Class, and British Airways’ Club Suite.
Enhanced Travel Opportunities
Spanish and Portuguese travelers can now explore a vast array of new destinations, whether for leisure or business.
From the serene beaches of the Maldives and Seychelles to adventurous escapades in Tanzania and Nepal, cultural experiences in India and Oman, shopping extravaganzas in Singapore and Thailand, or reconnecting with loved ones in Australia and Hong Kong – all these options become easily accessible.
Moreover, customers from the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and Australia can now enjoy seamless travel to several Spanish and Portuguese destinations such as Madrid, Lisbon, Ibiza, Malaga, and Gran Canaria.
A groundbreaking development, British Airways Executive Club, Iberia Plus, and Qatar Airways Privilege Club members can now collect and spend using their common currency, Avios.
Loyalty members can conveniently transfer Avios between accounts and combine their balances to claim rewards offered by each program.
Celebrating the Collaborative Effort
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, expressed his enthusiasm for this milestone: “At Qatar Airways, we believe in connecting travelers to their destinations of choice, and our recent enhancement to the highly successful joint business with British Airways includes the addition of another oneworld member, Iberia. Our passengers will now have more opportunities than ever to connect to different destinations across the British Airways, Iberia, and Qatar Airways networks. This collaborative effort comes as part of our commitment to continuously improve the offerings available to our passengers and provide them with the best in the industry.”
British Airways Chairman and CEO Sean Doyle echoed this sentiment: “Last year, we expanded our joint business partnership with Qatar Airways with the addition of 42 countries. I’m so pleased to see it growing even further as we welcome Iberia on board. We’re committed to offering our customers as much choice as possible and working closely with our Madrid and Doha partners to connect British Airways to more than 200 destinations globally.”
Iberia CEO, Fernando Candela, shared his excitement about the collaboration, emphasizing: “Joining the QJB with Qatar Airways and British Airways is excellent news for our customers. We are really excited about the launch of our Madrid-Doha route. Through QJB hubs in London and Doha, we are building the much-desired bridge between Spain and more than 200 destinations in Asia, Australasia, the Middle East, and Africa and offering new opportunities for travelers in both directions. Our country is moving towards a new model of higher-quality tourism, and with the Madrid-Doha launching, we are making a breakthrough.”
