Iberia becomes new partner in BA and Qatar’s joint business

Qatar Airways, British Airways and Iberia are joining forces to offer increased connectivity for travellers.

As part of the agreement, Iberia will add a new daily service from its hub, Madrid Barajas International Airport, to Hamad International Airport starting December 11 2023.

Together, Iberia’s and Qatar Airways’ expanded service will operate three times daily on the route.

Iberia will operate the Airbus A330-200, with 288 seats in Business and Economy cabins. 

Additionally, members of British Airways Executive Club, Iberia Plus, and Qatar Airways Privilege Club can collect and spend using their common currency, Avios. Loyalty members are able to transfer Avios between accounts and combine their balances to claim rewards offered by each programme.

Iberia CEO, Fernando Candela, said: “We are really excited about the launch of our Madrid-Doha route. Through QJB hubs in London and Doha, we are building the much-desired bridge between Spain and more than 200 destinations in Asia, Australasia, the Middle-East, and Africa.”
