IAG further reduces capacity and accesses job retention and wage support schemes
IAG continues to take every action to reduce operating expenses and improve cash flow.

On 16 March 2020, IAG announced that it would reduce capacity, expressed in terms of available seat kilometres, by at least 75 per cent in April and May compared to the same period in 2019. In recent weeks, IAG’s airlines have been helping to repatriate customers throughout the world and to conduct cargo flights delivering vital medical equipment and supplies, food and other products to combat COVID-19 and keep global supply chains moving.

Following a review, IAG has decided to reduce capacity further to an approximately 90 per cent reduction in April and May compared to last year.
