Iberia launches new low cost airline

Spanish airline Iberia has launched a new low cost airline, Iberia Express, which will begin flying on Sunday, with prices starting at just €25 (£21) one way.

The airline will initially fly to the Spanish cities of Vigo, Santiago and Granada, as well as Menorca, Ibiza, Fuerteventura, Lanzarote and La Palma. Later, it will expand to Italy, Greece, Latvia and the Netherlands.

The launch comes after Spain's fourth-largest airline Spanair collapsed in January, stranding 20,000 passengers.

"The containment of costs will allow Iberia Express to grow and compete with the low-cost operators," commented Iberia Express chief executive Luis Gallego.
