Iberia has taken delivery of its first Airbus A330-200, with registration EC-MIL.
The aircraft is a 242 Tonne model, with greater maximum take-off weight and range than the standard A330 models. It is the first of 13 that will join the fleet over the next three years.
The new aircraft comes equipped with Iberia’s all-new seating section. There is also a special portal allowing passengers to connect to the Internet with their own phones, tablets, or laptops, devices. The portal has its own news channel and also supplies information about the flight, as well as about Iberia.
In the past year and a half the Iberia Group has placed orders for a total of 29 along-haul aircraft, including 13 Airbus A330-200s, to be delivered before March, 2018, plus 16 late-model Airbus A350-900s, to be delivered between 2018 and 2021.
