Iberia has introduced a redesigned inflight dining service in all cabins and across short and long-haul routes.

The new menus in partnership with catering provider DO & CO include a “movie snack” in economy and premium economy cabins on long-haul flights.

This consists of a Magnum ice cream on flights from Madrid under 10 and a half hours in length, and a cookie on return services to the Spanish capital.

Longer routes will benefit from a tapas bag of cold cuts, bread sticks and olives on flights from Madrid (vegetarian option also available), with sandwiches being served on daytime return services, and crackers and cookies on night flights.

Meanwhile in business class an upgraded snack service including fruit baskets and hot and cold sandwiches has been introduced, building on enhancements launched last year.

  • Additional items now offered as part of the Gastrobar range include snack boxes, Starbucks coffee, Tetera teas, and the option to purchase amenity kits
  • Later this summer customers will be able to avail of a new Gastrobar@seat service, enabling them to order items from the phones via shop.iberia.com
  • A new digital tool has been introduced enabling customers to find out information about inflight meals and IFE services on their flights, as well as purchase wifi packages, and check boarding gate information for connecting services, all via one single link
  • “In the coming months” passengers will also be able to track luggage in real time, and make pre-selections for their business class meal
