Iberia begins to operate A350 at Quito Airport


A sunset illuminated by the Quito summer sun and an arc of water prepared by aeronautical firefighters at the Quito International Airport bode farewell to the Iberia Airbus A350, the most modern aircraft in the fleet of the Spanish company, which began operating on the Madrid – Quito – Madrid route. It is the first time that this aircraft has visited an airport in Ecuador.

Iberia’s flights are operated in compliance with the regulations established by both Ecuador and Spain, and following all the prevention and hygiene measures of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), the Spanish Agency Aviation Safety (AESA) and the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).

Andrew O’Brian, president and CEO of Corporación Quiport, the company that manages and operates the Quito airport, said: “The A350 is the most modern aircraft currently operating commercial flights. It offers a number of advantages in terms of fuel consumption that makes the operation more efficient and friendlier to the environment. In terms of service, the aircraft is ideal for intercontinental flights and offers a high-quality product for our passengers who can enjoy a more pleasant flight. I congratulate Iberia on this milestone in our joint operation.

The Spanish airline operates on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays during the month of August.
