Industry Level orders three Airbus A330-200
IAG has announced it has ordered three Airbus A330-200 for its long-haul low cost subsidiary Level. The aircraft will be delivered in summer 2018.
Level began operating in June 2017 with flights from Barcelona to Los Angeles, San Francisco (Oakland), Buenos Aires and Punta Cana, with two new Airbus A330-200s branded in its own livery and fitted with 293 economy and 21 premium economy seats. The aircraft are chartered from the IAG sister airline Iberia.
The additional Airbus A330 could be used for new planned bases in Rome or Paris. Willie Walsh, CEO of IAG, announced Level will open at least one new base in Europe in 2018. Level was established by IAG in response to increased competition in the long-haul market from low-cost airlines like Norwegian Air Shuttle or Eurowings.
