World 2 Fly is a new Spanish airline, which has plans to offer scheduled passenger flights. The airline will fly long-haul flights, connecting destinations within Europe to the Caribbean and parts of North America. The airline is yet to officially announce destinations but plans to mainly fly out of Spain from its hub at Madrid Airport (MAD). In the Caribbean and North America, the airline has expressed interest in flying to Cuba, Mexico and the Dominican Republic.
The airline was founded in 2020 by Spanish hotel company Iberostar. The idea to launch a new long-haul airline in Spain came after the coronavirus pandemic had forced many of Spain's active long-haul airlines — including Iberia and Air Europa — to reduce their schedule. As a new airline, World 2 Fly will be able to fly these transatlantic routes and offer passengers a connection that would not otherwise be available.
The airline is expected to offer travel package deals, partnering with its parent company Iberostar to offer flights and hotels. At Alternative Airlines, you'll be able to book any flight available from World 2 Fly.
