Iberia: “Against this challenging operating backdrop, the Iberia Group has implemented a Contingency Plan designed to mitigate the negative effects of these adverse factors. Among other measures, Iberia plans to continue adjusting its capacity during the second half, as traffic is expected to stay weak. Reviewing the flight programme will bring a reduction of more than 5% in total ASK vs. 2H08; capacity volume will be reduced by more than 4% on long-haul, 8.4% on international medium-haul and 4.6% on domestic routes. These adjustments will adapt to market evolution. Once the capacity review has ensured load factor stability, the company will focus its efforts on trying to halt the sharp decline in yield, and on continuing to cut all costs,” Company statement.
