Iberia to fly Airbus A350 to Costa Rica this year

August 8, 2019

Starting in December, passengers flying between Spain and Costa Rica can experience the journey in one of the industry’s most modern airplanes.

Spanish flag-carrier Iberia will operate an Airbus A350-900 on its San José-Madrid route from Dec. 18 to March 28, according to Costa Rica’s Tourism Board (ICT).

Iberia will be the first airline to fly the ultra-long-haul Airbus to Costa Rica.

According to the airline, the A350 “is a latest-generation aircraft equipped with state-of-the-art technology and designed to save fuel, therefore reducing the environmental impact.”

Airbus says the A350 family has a fuselage built with carbon-fiber reinforced plastic, “which supports lower fuel burn, easier maintenance and increased resistance to corrosion.”

The widebody plane “also offers multiple benefits for passengers, such as wider aisles, larger overhead bins, an air-conditioning system that enhances on-board comfort by providing fresher air, [and] panoramic windows,” Iberia says.

Iberia currently operates Airbus A330 and A340-series aircraft on its routes to Costa Rica.
