Iberia is to become the first airline to fly non-stop between Europe and the capital city of Quito.

Starting October 26, the Spanish carrier will operate flights from Madrid to Quito three times per week. Iberia will also continue to operate its existing Madrid-Quito-Guayaquil-Madrid service which runs four times per week. The expanded routes will effectively double Iberia’s capacity to Ecuador.

Iberia A340-600 JetThe new direct Madrid-Quito flights will operate on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday with departures from Madrid at 12:35 for an 18:05 arrival in Quito. The return flight leaves Quito at 21:20 to arrive in the Spanish capital at 14:05 the next day.

The route will be served by Airbus A340-600s with 342 seats, which is the largest aircraft currently operated by Iberia. The Airbus planes offer an extra 100 seats compared to aircraft presently used on the Guayaquil route. Iberia’s A340-600s are also being fitted with the new Business Plus flatbed seats.
