IAG's new low-cost airline is off to a flying start

IAG's Level has racked up over 100,000 in ticket sales barely three weeks after it's launch in what IAG CEO Willie Walsh is calling "a fantastic response in all markets."

The transatlantic low cost long haul carrier was first announced on 17 March and is offering fares as low as 99 euro (USD 105, AED 385) one-way to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Punta Cana, and Buenos Aires from Barcelona.

The airline will fly two new Airbus A330s with 314 seats when it begins flying from 1 June and there are plans add more aircraft, says Walsh.

"This is just the start. In summer 2018 we will have more aircraft and will operate more destinations from Barcelona. We’re also planning to expand Level operations to other European cities,” he says.

Level is IAG’s fifth airline brand alongside Aer Lingus, British Airways, Iberia and Vueling.
