Iberia is the largest Spanish airline based in Madrid. Its airport and hub is Madrid-Barajas. It was founded in 1927 by a Spanish investor and Luft Hansa, as the German company was known then. In 2010, Iberia and British Airways merged to form International Airlines Group Holding. Overall, Iberia flies to over 100 destinations in 43 countries.
