With the euro hitting new lows every day and many western European countries actively courting tourism, we count as welcome news that Iberia Airlines is restoring daily nonstop service between Boston and Madrid starting July 1. As the only airline that offers any nonstop Boston-Madrid service, Iberia’s daily flights will mean roughly 1,000 extra seats every week. As frequent visitors to Spain, we prefer to fly directly to and from Boston for three reasons:
(1) Iberia flights arrive at an optimal hour (7:10 a.m.) for both air and high-speed rail connections to Seville, Barcelona, and Bilbao.
(2) Iberia uses the state-of-the-art Terminal 4 at Barajas airport, which has its own dedicated subway connection to central Madrid.
(3) Coming home, it’s much faster to clear U.S. Customs and passport control in Boston than New York.

Patricia Harris and David Lyon’s newest Spain book, "Frommer’s Spain Day by Day,'' will be published in October.
