If you’re flying to-and-fro Spain and Israel anytime soon, you may be expecting a pleasant surprise.
Flights between Madrid and Tel Aviv have been reclassified as “long haul” by Iberia Airlines, meaning that passengers can expect larger and bendier seats, along with an upgraded entertainment touch-screen system.
The Spanish airline will be flying daily with a new long-haul aircraft, the Airbus A330-200, starting in April 2018.
Business class seats will have access to the aisle, and their seats will be able to fold into 2-meter long beds. With large touch-screens affixed to the side, business class passengers will also be able to watch newly-released movies, listen to music, and play video-games. For economy, the seats are more comfortable and passengers will also have a touchscreen.
For the new plane, passengers will be able to plug in their devices to power outlets. And wi-fi will be available to all passengers, unlike on most flights to-and-fro Tel Aviv.
Passengers departing from Tel Aviv will be able to connect to Iberia Airlines’ other 29 destinations in Spain, along with other destinations in Europe, the United States, and Latin America.
