Qatar Airways acquires 9.99% stake in IAG

Qatar Airways (QR, Doha Hamad Int'l) has acquired a 9.99% stake in International Airlines Group (IAG), the parent firm of British Airways, Iberia, and Vueling Airlines. The transaction is valued at roughly GBP1.15 billion (USD1.7 billion). In a press statement, the Qatari carrier said it may consider increasing its stake further over time.

Ryanair would consider Paris CDG services - for the right price

Ryanair (FR, Dublin Int'l) would consider opening up services to Paris CDG should operator Aéroports de Paris (ADP) reduce its fees. Ryanair Chief Commercial Officer David O'Brien told a press conference in Paris last week that the launch of any service would compliment, rather than compete, with its existing Paris Beauvais operations.

British Airways (BA, London Heathrow) parent, the International Airlines Group (IAG), will likely submit a third, more substantial bid for Aer Lingus (EI, Dublin Int'l) after the Irish carrier spurned IAG's two previous attempts citing the undervaluation of its business.

Bloomberg news says the new offer could entail as much as EUR2.50 (USD2.90) per share, up from the EUR2.40 (USD2.74) made in the previous offering. The IAG's last proposal, rejected late last year, valued Aer Lingus at EUR ...

Aer Lingus rejects second IAG proposal

Aer Lingus (EI, Dublin Int'l) board members have rejected a second proposal from British Airways, Vueling Airlines, and Iberia parent, the International Airlines Group (IAG). In a filing to the London Stock Exchange (LSE), the IAG confirmed it had submitted a revised proposal to Aer Lingus on December 29 of last year only for the Irish to reject the offer.

"The revised proposal consisted of a cash offer of EUR2.40 (USD2.74) per Aer Lingus share, subject to certain pre-conditions, representing ...
