Iberia to move to Heathrow T5

8 Feb 2012 by BusinessTraveller

Iberia’s flights between Madrid and London Heathrow will arrive into and depart from Terminal 5 as of March 25, with the services being given a new BA flight number.

The carrier’s eight daily return flights from Madrid currently operate into and out of Heathrow Terminal 3, but from the end of next month Iberia will move into merger partner BA’s hub at Terminal 5.

A statement from Iberia said that “The move will substantially improve connections between both airlines’ flight networks”, adding that the minimum connection time for flights between the two carriers will drop from 90 minutes to 60 minutes following the switch.

The two carriers have also been co-located at Madrid Barajas airport’s Terminal 4 since 2006.

Following the switch over these flights will move to a BA flight number, but will continue to be operated by Iberia, with the Spanish carrier’s onboard services.
