A number of unions within Iberia have called for strikes in December affecting six days in the run-up to Christmas.
IAG and British Airways announced that on November 16th they had lodged a claim in the UK High Court against SEPLA, the Iberia pilots’ union, and the International Federation of Airline Pilots Association in relation to strikes that SEPLA undertook against the creation of Iberia’s subsidiary Iberia Express in late 2011 and early 2012. This claim is not related to the recently announced restructuring of Iberia.
British Airways has confirmed its financial commitment to GreenSky London – a joint initiative with Solena. GreenSky London is a flagship project to construct a state of the art facility to produce sustainable jet fuel. The airline has committed to purchasing, at market competitive prices, the jet fuel produced by the plant for the next ten years which equates to US$500 million at today’s prices.
