New Premium Economy Cabin For Iberia

Spanish carrier Iberia has unveiled its new premium economy cabin, becoming the latest airline to offer the product as it looks to improve its onboard offerings to better compete and raise revenues.


Beginning in summer 2017, the Oneworld member will install the new seats on 37 of its long-haul aircraft, which are used on inter-continental flights between Barcelona and Madrid to Asia, North America and South America. 8 Airbus A330-300s and 13 A340-600s will first be refitted over the next 2 years, while a new fleet of 16 A350-900s will be delivered from 2018 with the cabin installed at the factory.


Spain’s largest airline has promised greater comfort with 19-inch wide seats, a seat width of 37 inches and 40 per cent more recline than regular Economy class seats. Inflight entertainment will be delivered by a larger 13-inch personal screen accompanied by noise-cancelling headphones, with other features being adjustable head and foot rests as well as an amenity kit. On the ground, passengers will also have priority boarding and disembarkation, additional luggage allowance and better dining choices.


Iberia and its subsidiaries operate some 600 flights a day to about 50 destinations in Europe, the Americas, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia, with a fleet of 134 aircraft.
