There is already a winner of the Champions League: the Liverpool team. But we can also say that in Iberia we have also won by breaking all the records. Just on Sunday June 2nd, Iberia Airport Services (IBAS) serviced 58 special flights and 11,000 fans returning to their homes in the United Kingdom. And over the weekend, almost 200 additional flights from 13 airlines, including Iberia and Iberia Express were serviced too.
A great operation and a great teamwork with an amazing result.
In Madrid airport the event was coordinated and prepared in advance among IBAS, AENA and customer airlines. Over the Champions weekend, this airport has dealt with more than 20,000 passengers of both teams that, for security reasons, were separated into different terminals and airplanes were parked in remote positions.
To realize the complexity of the operation, our ramp buses have traveled the equivalent distance between MAD and LHR (round trip ) or the equivalent of making 2,000 laps to the Wanda Metropolitan Stadium.
Most of the operations have been concentrated in the early hours of June 2nd, between 02:00 and 07:00 AM. Around 3:00 in the morning, 250 IBAS staff members were dedicated exclusively to this operation. An operation that finished once both teams supporters took off on their way home, with no incidents and with OTP of almost 90%
THANKS to all those who have made it possible.
