British Airways traffic rises in June

British Airways parent company, IAG, has reported a significant increase in capacity and passengers carried compared to June 2012 although this increase is entirely down to the takeover of Spanish low cost carrier Vueling.

Stripping out the effects of the takeover, the pattern of trade remains the same at IAG – a small growth in passenger numbers at British Airways but steep declines at Iberia.
