Iberia Adds New Eco-Friendly Planes to Fleet

Iberia, part of IAG, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the acquisition of eight A330 aircraft. The A330 selected will be the only twin-engine, wide-body aircraft in Iberia’s fleet. The engine selection will be made at a later date.

Iberia and British Airways merged in January 2011 and formed International Airlines Group (IAG), an Anglo-Spanish airline holding company, one of the largest in the world by revenues.

IAG chief executive Willie Walsh said: “The A330…provides us with considerable cost benefits due to its lower fuel consumption and commonality with Iberia’s existing long haul aircraft."

The A330-300 is geared for medium- to long-range flights, with a range of up to 5,600 nm with a typical 300 passenger load.
