History of Iberia

Iberia is one of the oldest airline companies in the world. Founded in 1927 with the help of the investment from Lufthansa, Iberia flew for the first time in 1927. Iberia was an innovative company on many levels: it was the first airline to provide commercial flights from Europe to South America in 1946, opened soon after that a shuttle route with cheap flights to Barcelona from Madrid, and was the first airline in Europe to initiate a customer rewards program. The 1950’s marked the first cheap flights to New York from Spain. In 1981, Iberia, with very tight security, flew Pablo Picasso’s Guernica on a flight from New York to Spain. Iberia was one of the first airlines with a website. Today Iberia works in close partnership with British Airways and is still one of the most historically important airlines with strong personality bringing innovation and quality service to passengers.
