Silvia Mosquera, Iberia Express’ CCO, and Aldis Mūrnieks, Member of the Board of Riga International Airport, celebrated the low-cost airline’s new route between the capitals of Spain and Latvia with a flamenco dancer cake.
Passengers were treated to sweets as they boarded the first Iberia Express flight to Mykonos in Greece through the balloon arch at Madrid Barajas Airport.
- Iberia Express launched two seasonal routes out of the Spanish capital Madrid (MAD) in the last week with its fleet of 180-seat A320s. On 3 July, Iberia’s low-cost subsidiary began serving Latvia’s capital Riga (RIX) with twice-weekly flights, on Tuesdays and Saturdays. The route, which Iberia Express will operate until 15 September, was operated by airBaltic during the last two summers. On 7 July, Iberia Express continued expanding and added a twice-weekly connection with the Greek island of Mykonos (JMK), which will be served until 29 August. Vueling operated the Greek route last summer.
