Iberia Group announces new route for this summer 2021. The flag carrier of Spain, Iberia will be commencing two direct flights on a weekly basis from Madrid to Male as part of its new summer programme. The weekly operations will start in July 2021 and continue onto August 2021.  

Iberia’s executive chairman Javier Sánchez-Prieto said, “The announcement of the new Maldives route is expected to raise company morale and is viewed both as good news for the travel business and as an example of how Iberia is adapting to the new circumstances, and opening new markets.” 

Further mentioning industry recovery he said, “Vaccination campaigns are leading to the lifting of restrictions on travel, and it is vital to come up with formulas that are valid for Europe, the Americas, and eventually for every country in the world.” 

The new route to Maldives is a change from traditional Iberia policy, as a point-to-point long-haul flight exclusively for holidaymakers. Iberia currently operates to 112 destinations and the new list of summer destinations to be added serves as an example of fast recovery.
