IB2906 MAD - ARN A346

Sat Jun 29, 2019 9:18 am

Hey everyone,

does anyone know what´s up with the flight in the title (live right now)? It´s scheduled once every 7 days it seems. Is this a normal scheduled flight or a specific reason for Iberia flying an A346 to Stockholm?

Thanks!

School holidays starts in Scandinavia this week,,,maybe this is the reason
But a look at FR24 and the flightnumber will show that this flight is operated with an A346 every saturday since at least may 18

IB29XX are usually charter flights. They have been used for Champions League games when Spanish team played. In this case, they are probably charter flights to ferry cruise ship passengers from Stockholm and Malmo ports.

Pablo359 is right. The flights are for cruise passengers. NEOS fly the 787 to ARN on saturdays aswell. Alitalia also send som A320s.

There are a lot of Spanish cruise guests in Scandinavia. UX also operates 787s and A332s on MAD-CPH/ARN during the summer. A few years ago it was normal with several Pullmantur Air 747s at once in CPH/MMX/ARN
Types flown: A319, A320, A32N, A321, A332, A333, A343, AT43, AT75, AT76, B717, B732, B735, B736, B737, B738, B752, B753, CRJ9, DC10, DH4D, DHC3, E135, E145, E175, E190, E195, F100, MD11, MD81, MD82, MD87, RJ1H
