BA Parent Launching Low-Cost Carrier LEVEL


International Airlines Group, the parent company of Aer Lingus and British Airways, will launch its low–cost option, LEVEL, in June.

LEVEL will fly from Barcelona to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Buenos Aires and Punta Cana on two new Airbus A330 aircraft.

Base fares start at $149 one way and are on sale today (flylevel.com). A premium economy option will also be available; it will include checked luggage, meals, seat selection and seat-back entertainment.

"This is just the start. We're really excited about the opportunities for expansion and we plan to bring LEVEL to other European destinations,” said CEO Willie Walsh.
