As expected, the main Spanish airlines have begun to react as potential travelers became interested in tickets and reservations for ordinary flights were exhausted due to the demand of people interested in attending the funeral of Pope John Paul II.
As we have news of the programming of new special flights to Rome, we will inform our readers, with special reference to cheap flights.
Iberia, connections with Rome
At the moment, Iberia maintains five daily flights from Madrid and three flights from Barcelona. In total, the offer does not exceed 1,500 seats, which seems scarce to attend to the many faithful who want to travel to Rome during these days.
Faithful and religious in Latin America have made requests for tickets to Spain to travel to Rome subsequently. Iberia has apparently decided to change the planes on which these routes are normally carried out for larger ones. The difficulties of scheduling new flights are further limited by the saturation of the Rome Airport.
Cheap flights without restrictions
On the other hand, good news, as we have observed, is that Iberia has lifted the limitations on the advance sale of tickets at cheap prices until the 17th of this month.
