Spanish flag carrier Iberia announced Monday that it will add nonstop flights from Madrid (MAD) to Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW), San Francisco (SFO), and Washington, D.C. (IAD).

The new routes will commence in April 2022, just in time for the busy summer travel season. Coincidentally (or maybe not), the news came on the same day that the U.S. reopened its borders to vaccinated European citizens and those from dozens of countries around the world.

More Connectivity to Spain

Iberia’s arrival in Dallas-Fort Worth will mark the first time the airline has ever touched down in the Texas metropolis. The airport serves as an important hub for the Oneworld alliance, as it’s the largest base for Iberia’s partner American Airlines.

Iberia will offer nonstop service between Dallas and Madrid 4 times per week, giving Dallas-based flyers another nonstop option to reach the Spanish capital, while those living outside of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex can connect through the hub to fly to Spain with just 1 stop.

Flights between Madrid and Washington, D.C. were a pre-pandemic plan of Iberia’s. Now that travel is coming back, the airline will finally make those plans come to fruition with 4 weekly nonstop flights connecting the 2 national capitals beginning April 2022.

As for San Francisco, the upcoming nonstop flights to Madrid represent a resumption of nonstop seasonal service that began several years ago but was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It will be operated 3 times per week on a seasonal basis for the summer travel season and will supplement Iberia’s existing seasonal operations between San Francisco and Barcelona (BCN), which will resume on March 29, 2022.

These new routes will supplant the carrier’s existing nonstop routes between the U.S. and Spain, bringing the total number of U.S. and U.S. territory destinations served to 9. Come next summer, Iberia will offer nonstop flights between Spain and Boston (BOS), Chicago (ORD), Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW), Los Angeles (LAX), Miami (MIA), New York (JFK), San Francisco (SFO), San Juan (SJU), and Washington, D.C. (IAD).

As per the current winter season that started October 31, 2021, there are a total of 70 scheduled round-trip flights operated by Iberia between the 2 nations.

Final Thoughts

Americans will soon have even more options for convenient travel to Spain thanks to Iberia’s latest expansion of its transatlantic route network.

Time to get planning so you can enjoy the tapas, sangria, and sunshine that Spain is famous for!
