- In June 2011, Group traffic measured in Revenue Passenger Kilometres rose by 9.2 per cent versus June 2010, capacity measured in Available Seat Kilometres was up 6.8% per cent.  

- Group premium traffic for the month of June grew by 25.2 per cent compared to the previous year, with 6.7 per cent growth in non-premium traffic. 

- Traffic statistics for the month are once again impacted by the positive comparison from disruption at British Airways last year and the network restructuring in Iberia.

- We believe underlying revenue trends are in line with previous months, with demand continuing to show firm underlying growth particularly in the long haul premium segment.

Iberia launched its new twice weekly route between Barcelona and Sao Paulo and resumed its summer only flights from Madrid to Dubrovnik which operate three times a week. The airline also started two new cargo routes - a twice-weekly service between Madrid and Brussels and a weekly service between Madrid and Nouakchott (Mauritania) via Gran Canaria.

British Airways cabin crew, who are members of the Unite union, voted 92 per cent in favour of a settlement to resolve their long running dispute with the airline.
