On 17 June, the chief executives of IAG, Air France-KLM, easyJet, Lufthansa Group and Ryanair announced that they will work together to develop an EU aviation strategy which will support growth and jobs across Europe, strengthen the sector and provide more choice and competitive fares to European passengers. This is in response to a consultation by the EU Transport Commissioner Violeta Bulc.
