International Airlines Group is converting three Airbus A330-200 long-haul aircraft options into firm orders for LEVEL, its new low cost long-haul airline brand which started operations in early June.
The aircraft will be delivered in summer 2018 and will facilitate LEVEL’s expansion. Willie Walsh, IAG chief executive, said: “LEVEL has already been incredibly successful and these aircraft will enable it to expand.
“Long-haul flights are now available to many people for the first time and we’re extremely pleased with the customer response in all of LEVEL’s markets.
“It will continue to stimulate demand by providing people with more choice.” These modern, fuel efficient aircraft will bring both cost efficiencies and environmental benefits to LEVEL.
