IAG and Iberia Order 8 Airbus A330-200s
Airbus and International Airlines Group, which owns British Airways and Iberia, announced a firm order for eight Airbus A330-200s.
The aircraft will be placed into service at Spanish flag carrier Iberia, which operates an all-Airbus fleet. IAG is converting eight options for the A330-200 into firm orders.
Iberia will take delivery of the planes starting at the end of 2015. The airline already operates eight A330-300s and has an order for eight Airbus A350-900 jets in the pipeline. The new planes will replace 16 A340 aircraft in the airline’s long-haul fleet.
Iberia was founded in 1927 and flies to more than 100 destinations in 38 countries. It is the largest airline in Spain and its two primary bases are at Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas Airport and Barcelona El Prat Airport.
