Starting in December, travelers flying among Spain and Costa Rica can experience the trip in one of the industry’s most modern airplanes.
Spanish flag-carrier will conduct an Airbus A350-900 on its San José-Madrid route from Dec. 18 to March 28, according to Costa Rica’s Tourism Board (ICT).
The Spanish airline will be the first to fly the ultra-long-haul Airbus to Costa Rica.
According to Iberia, the A350 “is a latest-generation aircraft equipped with state-of-the-art technology and designed to save fuel, therefore reducing the environmental impact.”
Airbus says the A350 family has a fuselage built with carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic, “which supports lower fuel burn, easier maintenance and increased resistance to corrosion.”
The widebody plane “also offers multiple benefits for passengers, such as wider aisles, larger overhead bins, an air-conditioning system that enhances onboard comfort by providing fresher air, [and] panoramic windows,” Iberia says.
