Iberia and British Airways Merger Benefits

The merger of the Iberia and British Airways proceeds to bring new advantages to customers of both airlines.  The latest benefit will relocate all Iberia flights at London Heathrow (LHR) to Terminal 5.  This will take place on March 25, 2012.

One of the largest benefits will be a substantial reduction in minimum connecting time.  The minimum connecting time between Heathrow Terminal 3, where Iberia is now, and Heathrow Terminal 5, is 90 minutes; with both carriers in Terminal 5, the minimum connecting time will be reduced to 60 minutes.  The transatlantic Joint Venture between US based American Airlines along with British Airways and Iberia has resulted in many flights operating under codeshare agreements – the latest move will further strengthen the codeshare agreements.

Iberia customers will be able to enjoy the new Terminal 5 at Heathrow Airport with over 110 shops and restaurants, plus award winning lounges for business class passengers.  Iberia Plus Gold and Platinum frequent flyer members will also have access to premium lounges.

Heathrow’s Terminal 5 opened in 2008 to operate British Airways’ hub under one roof.  Passengers originating in London will have access to all of the check-in kiosks and bag drops, while Business Class passengers have a dedicated check-in area along with access to Fast-Track security queues.

Iberia’s hub is located at Madrid’s Barajas Airport (MAD) Terminal 4, also a modern facility opened in 2006.  Iberia and British Airways have been located together in Madrid in Terminal 4 since the new terminal opened; with the change at Heathrow (LHR), all Iberia and British Airways flights between their two hubs will use the same terminals, providing passengers a smoother travel experience.

Both British Airways and Iberia are part of International Airline Group (IAG).
