Qatar Airways Raises Stake in IAG

Doha-based, state-owned carrier now holds just over 15% of the British Airways parent


REUTERS
By ROBERT WALL
Updated May 17, 2016

Qatar Airways said Tuesday it had raised its stake in British Airways parent International Consolidated Airlines Group SA and would consider becoming an even larger investor in the European airline.

Qatar Airways, which last year became the largest shareholder in London-based IAG, said its stake had now grown to 15.01%. “Qatar Airways may consider increasing its stake further over time within the allowable limits,” the Doha-based, state-owned carrier said.

Under European Union rules, foreign investors are limited to holding 49% of a European carrier. IAG said it wouldn’t comment on Qatar Airways’s decision to expand its stake.

Qatar Airways initially acquired 9.9% of IAG for about 1.2 billion, or about $1.7 billion, and lifted its stake to 10.01%, according to FactSet. The latest increase in its IAG holding is valued at roughly 518 million at Tuesday’s closing price of 5.19 per IAG share.

“We have been very happy with our investment in IAG, from a financial, commercial and strategic perspective,” Qatar Airways Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker said. The Middle East carrier said it backed IAG’s strategy.


IAG’s shares have slumped 15% this year amid wider investor concern about the prospects for European airlines, which have suffered from falling ticket prices and weakened demand from terror attacks in Paris last year and in Brussels in March. IAG shares also have been hit by uncertainty over Britain’s continued membership in the European Union, which is subject to a referendum on June 23.

IAG said last month that it would cut growth plans and accelerate cost savings to soften the effect of the financial headwinds. The airline group maintained its full-year guidance of delivering an operating profit of roughly €3.2 billion.

IAG, born of the merger of British Airways and Spain’s Iberia, also includes Spanish discount carrier Vueling and Ireland’s Aer Lingus.

Qatar Airways and IAG already cooperate on several fronts. The Mideast carrier has provided some of IAG’s cargo service since 2014 and the two companies have embarked on some joint purchasing. IAG Chief Executive Willie Walsh said this year that there were further opportunities to cooperate in a bid to cut costs, calling the partnership with Qatar Airways an “excellent relationship.”

British Airways sponsored the entry of Qatar Airways into the Oneworld alliance that also includes American Airlines Group Inc. British Airways also said this month that it would serve Doha direct starting Oct. 30, eliminating the Bahrain stopover.

The investment also deepens Qatar’s bet on the lucrative trans-Atlantic market between the U.S. and London.

Mr. Al Baker sits on the board of London’s Heathrow Airport, Europe’s busiest hub, in which Qatar Holding LLC, an arm of the country’s sovereign-wealth fund, holds a 20% stake.

The Qatar Airways CEO said the relationship with IAG “has helped to deliver on our westbound strategy.” The airline has been rapidly expanding its network and next month plans to add service to Atlanta.

The blistering growth of Qatar Airways and rival Mideast growth carrier Emirates Airline and Abu Dhabi’s Etihad Airways has irked some of their Western rivals, including Delta Air Lines Inc. and Air France-KLM SA, which accuse them of unfairly benefiting from state aid. The three Persian Gulf airlines deny the accusation.

Qatar Airways also is considering taking a stake in Italian carrier Meridiana, though talks aren’t final.


Mr. Al Baker last month reaffirmed his airline’s interest in expanding in the Indian market, potentially by taking a stake in budget airline IndiGo. Qatar Airways also might become an investor in Royal Air Maroc with backing from the governments of Qatar and Morocco, Mr. Al Baker has said.

Probably going to join brother A6-EMD in Tupelo. Emirates are unusual in that they actually plan on flying an aircraft until it is no longer economic and then fly it to the scrapheap after they debrand it of its colours.

A6-EMD > http://www.jetphotos.net/photo/8126090 1 year later.

Anyone know if Emirates and/or Etihad have plans to further expand into the US?

I think they're waiting to see the outcome of the subsidy accusations first. Qatar just launched Las Vegas last week, and it looks like Emirates will be going to Philadelphia, Atlanta, Las Vegas, and Miami next.

QR launched ATL on 1st June, LAS maybe in January.

EK and QR always looking for new destinations across the globe. EY is quite since a while with new destinations.

QR now serves Los Angeles... What about its NorCal counterpart, San Francisco? I hope it will be served using either a 77W or 77L, if not the new A350 or A380.

I think QR could put a 77W on the DOH-SFO route. It should time it to catch connections from DOH to India, tapping into the sizeable Indian community in the Bay Area. (e.g. if you take CX SFO-HKG, it's full of passengers catching onward connections to Delhi and Bombay)

The problem is QR does not have that much capacity to India. They are severely restricted by the bilateral, and all these flights they are starting to America will struggle without a large amount of feed from India. EY and EK both have much larger seat allowances to India (I think more twice as much as QR).

Las Vegas and Doha....When was the last time (or first time) you saw both the cities in the same sentence?

Surely it is shorter Eastbound to SFO from India than Westbound. Flying via the Gulf will inevitably be longer.

Gulf carriers are to my mind competitive to the East Coast of the USA if anywhere.
