Iberia Lineas Aereas de Espana SA is still considering setting up another brand or affiliate to cater for the low-cost.
The LCC would also come with low wages staff, in order make Iberia save some 550-600 mln eur.
Savings would also come from renegotiated travel agencies commissions, changes to in-flight services and the management of fuel needs.

Where would the aircraft most likely come from?
What would be the first route(s)?

VIVA air.

Iberia even have a brand, and logo sitting in a drawer somewhere. Viva was profitable, and had a future. Unions didnt like it.

Hmm intersting ~ You really think they would reuse the name?

Viva Air

SPAIN - EC

ICAO CODE: VIV

CALLSIGN: Viva

Viva Air began life on 24 February 1988 formed as a Spanish and German inclusive-tour charter carrier. It was created by Lufthansa and Iberia.

The airline flew its first flights on 15 April 1988 with a small fleet of three Boeing 737 series 300 jets in a colourful sun-and-sea livery reflecting its mission as a holiday carrier. Two further 737-300 jets were acquired the following year.



Douglas DC9-32 jets were leased by the airline to cover its needs until it built up a fleet of nine 737-300s in the early 1990s.

One of Viva Air's other tasks was to fly some scheduled services for parent-company Iberia. One of these routes that was flown on a daily basis was a Spanish regional route to London-Heathrow, for which it used 737s.

Iberia took over 98 percent of the shares of the previously join-owned airline in the mid-1990s after which Viva Air started some of Iberia's domestic scheduled routes although these were ended in 1995 at which time the airline concentrated on the IT holiday charter business on behalf of Iberia. Viva Air also flew ad-hoc charters.

It used to operate the Heathrow - Palma service for certain. Don't know if it did any others into LHR.

It also did ALC and VLC to DUB on a scheduled basis.

Great logo with a very Spanish name.

I take it the 319's that were based in Miami or the just recently ordered 318's will become the fleet for Iberia's new LCC?

I do agree completely. As much as I love Spain and it's people as much I am disappointed about Iberia's services. Also what their staff here in Switzerland (most of them Swiss people) provide is far away from a good polite service.

How about "Iberata" which means Iber cheap!

Having flown IB domestic and intra european flights before and after they took away free food, it makes you wonder who will fly IB if they start their LCC... It is like Delta domestic and Song. Service is better on a Song flight than on a DL flight and Song is cheaper most of the times, though they only fly destinations where LCC competiton is tough...

How about bringing back the name AVIACO!!!

For people here claiming to be Airline enthusiast some should first learn what a LCC is.

A second brand to compete with LCC in certain routes might be a good idea and if it's carried out only time will tell.

I imagine they would compete on routes which are now done by LCC and IB is not present.

DUB-LPA or LON-IBZ/PMI/MAH for example also I would go for LON-LEI and LON-MJV very popular lately with the Brits.
