Willie Walsh, the CEO of the newly formed International Airlines Group (IAG), has said the merged company has a “great future”, which will include other carriers.
“British Airways and Iberia are the first two airlines in IAG but they won’t be the last,” he said.
Combined, the carriers represent the third largest scheduled airline in Europe, with joint revenues of more than €14 billion.
Walsh said his focus now will be on signing up other carriers.
“Our goal is for more airlines – but, importantly, the right airlines – to join the group. Today is the first step towards creating a multinational multi-brand airline group,” he said.
