Iberia’s Airbus A350 NPS


The new Iberia A350s are fitted with a new Business class seat with doors to give greater privacy. The flat bed is 5cm longer than that of Iberia’s previous business-calss seat

The new economy-class seats are 1cm wider than the previous versions, and incorporate new storage areas for personal items

The new NEXT in-flight entertainment (IFE) system boasts the latest Panasonic technology, a more modern, interactive and intuitive design, 4K resolution, larger screens in Premium Economy and Economy, and Bluetooth pairing options at every seat

The A350 NPS has six different lighting environments (wake up, meal, relax, sleep, boarding, take-off and landing) to adapt the light to each stage of the flight

The first A350 to join the Iberia fleet in 2018 was the first of a new production standard (NPS), and the airline is once again debuting an A350 NPS

All seats in the business-class cabin have direct aisle access, and the centre seats, known as honeymoon seats, feature an automatic divider for customisable privacy levels

Premium economy class is now more private, thanks the addition of ‘wings’ to the headrest, which can be folded and adjusted on both sides for greater comfort

The trim on the premium economy class seats help differentiate them from standard economy

The adjustable headrests in premium economy class support the head, helping enable sleep during flight

The A350 NPS cabin is wider at armrest level. Rather than squeeze in an extra seat to make the economy cabin 10-abreast, Iberia decided to maintain the number of seats per row and increase the width per seat by 1cm

Personal stowage in business class

Natural wood effects have been specified for the new Iberia business-class seats

Iberia’s A350 NPS features upgraded IFE throughout, with a customised Panasonic Next platform
