Don’t forget IAG is a Spanish company. IMO Brexit makes no difference whatsoever – UK govt have made a habit of allowing self-offs to EU and non-EU companies regardless of the position of the EU. (Who incidentally conveniently ignore French Government significant holdings in a range of “Utilities”.)

But the flagship member of IAG is a British company, with a British operating licence, which will (if Brexit actually happens) lose the advantage of any EU freedom rights – as will the other members as regards flights to and from the UK.

Which makes one wonder further – if the UK doesn’t join the EEA or rejoin the EFTA, what will happen to Norwegian and Ryanair flights to/from the UK??
