IB will start 5 weekly frequencies from MAD to ATH from January.
The flights will operate Monday to Thursday and Saturdays departing MAD at 11:35 and returning from ATH at 18:25.
I hope to see some new routes this year.
Regarding opening of new routes I would like to remind how IB was criticized for not opening the China route, some people on this forum even accused its management of being too conservative and how smart UX were to take up this opportunity.
Time seems to put everyone in its place, UX are reducing their china operations after it failed to meet their expectations. "Just what the IB people said would happen".
