Iberia Express is a Madrid-based airline operating short and medium-haul flights. A wholly- owned subsidiary of Iberia, the company competes both effectively and sustainably in an increasingly complex market. Iberia Express also provides its parent company with profitable direct and feeder flights, which actively support growth in Iberia’s long-haul network.

Iberia Express began operating in March 2012 and since then the airline has become one of the top four airlines operating out of Madrid’s Barajas airport. According to FlightStats, Iberia Express outperforms all other European airlines in terms of punctuality.

All the company’s flights are connected to the Iberia network to allow smooth connections for passengers travelling from any airport.  The company currently has codeshare agreements with LAN Airlines, British Airways, American Airlines, Air Berlin, Japan Airlines, Avianca, Finnair, Siberia Airlines and Royal Air Maroc.

Iberia Express' management team, led by Fernando Candela, strives to select, train and foster the talents of the very best professionals. Together they create a young, friendly and streamlined airline whose business plan is not only economically-viable but allows it to thrive among the competition and stand firmly on its own two feet.

The A320 family:

With over 6,500 aircraft sold and 4,000 currently in service, the A320 is the world's best- selling family of aircraft. Since first being released on to the market, where it showcased innovations such as its fly-by- wire control system, Airbus has continually upgraded the family in order to further reduce fuel needs, emissions and noise levels.

Iberia Express stands firmly behind its commitment to corporate social responsibility. In addition to adhering to the United Nations Global Compact, the airline carries out a number of initiatives to support society as a whole.

UNICEF
Iberia Express regularly collaborates with UNICEF Spain, one of the 36 national committees contributing to the work of the United Nation's Children's Fund. Since the airline was founded, Iberia Express has participated in two service programmes: “Cumpledías” (combatting child malnutrition) and “Agua Urgente para los niños sirios” (providing clean water for children in Syria).

Salme’s Cup
Iberia Express was the official airline of the fifth Salme’s Cup charity golf tournament, held in summer 2014. Each year, this sporting event brings together 120 VIP guests over a game of golf to raise funds for those most in need.

Aviación Sin Fronteras (Aviation without Borders)
In 2013, Iberia Express began collaborating with Aviación Sin Fronteras, a non-profit organisation helping young travellers in need. The organisation relies mainly on the generosity of its members, who are primarily airline employees. Iberia Express supports their endeavours, providing meeting and event spaces and assisting with transport.

Other collaborations
Iberia Express also actively supports the Abracadabra and Theodora foundations and sponsored the Land Rover Discovery Challenge charity event.
