STRATEGIC DEVELOPMENTS
On 24 July, IAG announced that it had converted three Airbus A330-200 longhaul aircraft options into firm orders for LEVEL. The aircraft will be delivered in summer 2018 and will facilitate LEVEL's expansion.

On 19 July, Iberia relaunched its Madrid-Barcelona air bridge shuttle. The new service is operated jointly with Vueling and offers up to 26 daily frequencies between both cities. Customers can book their flights in advance or buy tickets on the day with full flexibility to change their travel plans.

As part of British Airways £400m customer investment plan, the airline announced its partnership with luxury lifestyle brand, The White Company to supply bedding and amenity kits in Club World. In addition, nearly 200,000 customers have used British Airways' new exclusive check-in area for First, Gold Executive Club and oneworld Emerald customers at Heathrow Terminal 5, since it opened in April 2017.
