Spanish carrier Iberia recently placed an order of up to eight eco-efficient A330s aimed at fuel consumption.
Willie Walsh, chief executive, IAG, said, “The A330 is an excellent aircraft, both in terms of comfort and operational performance, and it will be a welcome addition to Iberia’s fleet. It also provides us with considerable cost benefits due to its lower fuel consumption and commonality with Iberia’s existing long haul aircraft.”
Earlier this year a newly formed Anglo-Spanish airline company ‘International Airlines Group’ (IAG) came into being with the merger of Iberia Airlines and British Airways.
