More nonstop flights from Northern California to Spain will soon be just a drive away.
The Spanish airline Iberia will offer direct flights between San Francisco and Madrid next year, according to the blog TravelSkills. The service will be the first without stops between the cities.
Iberia’s service will be seasonal, running only from May to September on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and will offer business class and economy seating. Flights are expected to be around $1,400 round trip in May, according to the blog’s writer, who says that cost could dip below $1,000.
San Francisco would join Oakland in offering nonstop service between the U.S. and Spain. Oakland has flights on two airlines that go to Barcelona.
