Iberia is increasing seats on its Madrid to Tokyo Narita route next year, just in time for the Summer Olympics and the inevitable increase in tourists. It currently flies five times a week between the two cities.
From the 29th March 2020 it will replace the existing A330-200 service with its new A350-900 aircraft which we reviewed here. This will increase the size of the business cabin from 19 to 31 seats, as well as add 24 premium economy seats.
From 17th June, Iberia is adding an additional two daily Tokyo flights, making it a daily service. These will operate on Tuesdays and Wednesdays outbound and Wednesday and Thursdays on the inbound.
If you are heading to the Olympics next year or simply want to visit Tokyo, flying via Madrid is a cheaper way of doing it.
