STRATEGIC DEVELOPMENTS

On February 1st, IAG confirmed that no agreement had been reached between Iberia and its trade unions over the airline's transformation plan. Iberia will press ahead with the previously announced capacity reduction of 15 per cent for 2013. IAG will also move forward on alternative plans to return Iberia to break-even, in terms of operating cash flow, by the second half of this year and restore Iberia to an acceptable level of profitability by 2015.

 

On January 31st, Malaysia Airlines joined oneworld alliance adding one of Asia's leading airlines to the group. Malaysia Airlines, which serves more than 60 destinations in almost 30 countries, will substantially expand the alliance's network in one of the world's fastest growing economic powerhouses, South East Asia.

 

Iberia unveiled its new long haul business and economy class cabins at the Fitur travel fair in Madrid. The new product will be introduced with the first of the new Airbus A330-300 being delivered in February.
