Iberia considers Air France-KLM merger a 'viable path to follow'
He noted, however, that Iberia is waiting for the terms of the privatisation of the airline before making any decision to acquire a stake.
Earlier this month, Iberia spokesman Jaime Perez Guerra said in Mexico that Iberia is interested in acquiring either Mexicana de Aviacion or Aeromexic, the two airlines majority-held by the Mexican government, when they are privatised.
Mexicana de Aviacion is currently held by Mexican state holding company Cintra.
Turning to the company's dividend policy, Conte said that Iberia will continue to match its dividend payments with its results.
