Carcassonne Cake. Iberia’s weekly service from Alicante was welcomed to France by this very three-dimensional lettered cake. We’re not sure if the plane was edible too.
- Iberia commenced three new routes in late June. The 597-kilometre route from Alicante (ALC) to Carcassonne (CCF) started on 20 June, and will be flown weekly (Saturdays) by Iberia Regional’s ATR 72s until 24 August. Also flown by the 72-seat turboprop is the weekly (Sundays) Ibiza (IBZ) to Perpignan (PGF) service, which began on 28 June and is scheduled for seasonal closure on 31 August. Neither of these routes will face any direct competition. Finally, on 23 June, the 1,452-kilometre sector from Madrid (MAD) to Palermo (PMO) commenced. Flown by Iberia Regional’s 50-seat CRJ 200s until 8 September, the city pair is already operated by ULCC Ryanair on a thrice-weekly basis.
