Iberia, British Airways and the IAG Group soon to be at the end of the line


The UK Government’s intention would be to inject capital into British Airways in exchange for strict demands such as limiting dividend payments or reducing management fees.

Another hypothesis that is being considered is that « London and Madrid will go to the rescue of IAG together, » the Spanish newspaper Expansión said in its yesterday’s edition on Monday.

The British government has announced its intention to offer 359.96 billion euros in aid in the form of guaranteed loans, an injection that some analysts consider insufficient.

The closure of airspace due to the coronavirus is causing a hole of 217 million euros a week for the IAG group. Seventy-five percent of the group’s planes are on the ground and Iberia in Spain has already announced an ERTE (Expediente de Regulación Temporal de Empleo) for its 16,000 workers to guarantee its future.
