Legally incorporated as Iberia Líneas Aéreas de España S.A. Operadora, Sociedad Unipersonal, Iberia Airlines is the flag carrier of Spain. Founded in 1927, and based in Madrid, it is now a part of the International Airlines Group (IAG), and flies to almost 200 different destinations.
In 2010, Iberia and British Airways merged. Combining them meant they were now the third largest commercial airline in the world in terms of revenue. Although they merged, they both decided to continue separate operations under their current brands.
Iberia's history is of persistence. It was originally sponsored by the Spanish government, but when Spain was ruled by dictator Miguel Primo de Rivera, all aviation companies were combined in the country, creating CLASSA, Compañía de Líneas Aéreas Subvencionadas S.A. In 1944, after the Spanish Civil War, Iberia once again became nationalized, and it joined the INI. Iberia was the first airline to fly between Europe and South America following World War II in 1946.
