Iberia To Launch Doha Flights

Iberia Airbus A330-202

From December 2023, Ibera will spread its wings and fly to Doha to join British Airways and Qatar Airways by expanding a joint airline business.

The daily flights will begin on December 11th, 2023 and operate between Madrid and Doha. As both airlines are part of the Oneworld alliance, it is expected to increase capacity between the hubs significantly.

Operated by an Airbus A330-200, Iberia has the aircraft configured with 288 seats in a two-class configuration, with Business and Economy classes being present.

Once arriving in Doha, customers will also be able to access the expansive route network offered by Qatar Airways to a host of other locations, increasing connectivity for those located in Madrid and providing more choices.

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.

However, while a focus has been put on those leaving Madrid, Iberia notes that travellers originating in Australia, Asia, Africa, and even the Middle East will now have a more direct connection to other major Spanish cities that Iberia connects Madrid with too.

With this being over seven hours of flying to Doha, the mission is to allow passengers maximum time to connect further, assuming that most travelling the route will be heading onwards.

This is why the mention of more than 200 available route choices comes up in the release, highlighting the presence Qatar Airways has globally and how partnerships can aid each respective carrier.
