Iberia has announced that it will start a new route from Madrid–Barajas Airport to Washington Dulles International Airport.

The service to the US capital will begin in summer 2020 and is set to be served up to five times per week. The Spanish carrier will deploy Airbus A330-300 aircraft on the route that was already operated by the airline until 2010.

Besides the new flights to Washington DC, Iberia published a list of routes that will be operated by its brand new Airbus A350-900 aircraft in the future:

Starting on March 29, 2020, Iberia will deploy the A350 jet on its route between Madrid and Tokyo. Moreover, the service will be upgraded to a daily service in June 2020. Iberia will also send its A350-900s instead of A330 airplanes to Los Angeles in 2020.

The airline is already flying the A350-900 on its routes from Madrid to New York, Chicago, Buenos Aires and Santiago, Chile.

On long-haul flights, Iberia currently operates an all-Airbus fleet of A330-200, A330-300, A340-600 and A350-900 aircraft. The carrier ordered a total of 20 A350s to replace older A340 jets.
