Spain confronts Brexit: The moment of truth for Spanish companies in the UK

IAG: British Travellers To Spain Increase By 400%

The acquisition of Air Europa, with a possible improvement of the conditions, is an additional advantage.

Banc Sabadell | IAG results in Q119 in line with expectations in EBIT and better in financing post tax profits: Sales: 5.318 Bn€ (+5.9%); EBIT: 135 M€ (-51.8%); post tax profits: 70 M€ (-66%). Sales evolved slightly below expectations (-0.7% vs BS expected) affected by unitary passenger income after currency change which fell -1.4% (vs -1% BS expected). Thus was compensated by unitary non-fuel costs which fell -0.6% at constant exchange rates (vs 0% BS expected). This poor income performance contributes a certain negative trend.
