IAG considers legal action against UK quarantine rules, receives nod by Ryanair
Chief executive Willie Walsh told Sky News that he is reviewing the matter with lawyers.
British Airways, which is burning £178mln per week, flew only 485 passenger flights in May.
Its chief executive Alex Cruz previously said the mandatory two-week quarantine impositions to UK inbound travellers are “another blow to our industry”.
Shares in IAG jumped 13% to 326.3p, while Ryanair rose 1% to €12.90 on Friday afternoon.
