British Airways Parent to Launch Low-Cost Flight to Los Angeles

International Airlines Group have announced a new carrier entitled LEVEL, which will begin operation this June, aiming to deliver low-cost flights from Barcelona to Los Angeles.

LEVEL will fly two new Airbus A330 aircraft to the US location. In a statement IAG announced that fares are now on sale and lead in from €99/US$149 one way.

Willie Walsh, IAG chief executive, said:

“LEVEL is an exciting new IAG airline brand which will bring a stylish and modern approach to flying at prices that are even more affordable. It will benefit from having the strength of one of the world’s largest airline groups behind it. LEVEL will become IAG’s fifth main airline brand alongside Aer Lingus, British Airways, Iberia and Vueling. It will complement our existing airline portfolio and further diversify our current customer base.

Barcelona is Vueling’s home base and this will allow customers to connect from Vueling’s extensive European network onto LEVEL’s longhaul flights. This is just the start. We’re really excited about the opportunities for expansion and we plan to bring LEVEL to other European destinations”.
