Three jets will be added to the fleet, at least 2 of which will go to the new base, which will either be Rome or Paris.
LEVEL provides a transatlantic route with its first flights operating from Barecelona to Los Angeles, Oakland, Punta Cara and Buenos Aires. Level operates two Airbus A330s using Iberia’s cabin and flight crew and plans to operate more flight routes from 2018.
LEVEL offers passengers to fly on a basic fare, with the option to buy additional purchases such as entertainment and food.
Premium Economy: 1 checked baggage, 1 cabin bag, meals, movie and seat selection.

Low-cost Spain flights move to SFO from Oakland
Level Airlines to add nonstops to Barcelona
IAG’s Level subsidiary will move its flights across the bay from Oakland to SFO in October
Level, the low-cost affiliate of British Airways and Iberia – all are subsidiaries of parent International Airlines Group (IAG) – plans to shift its Bay Area Barcelona flights from Oakland International to San Francisco International this fall.
Starting October 31, Level will operate two winter season flights a week to Barcelona from SFO with a 288-passenger A330-200 equipped with premium economy and regular economy seating.
IAG created Level to compete head-to-head against low-cost transatlantic specialist Norwegian, which started flying from Oakland to Barcelona in summer of 2017 – about the same time IAG did. Oakland is Norwegian's gateway of choice in the Bay Area, and it also flies to Barcelona from Los Angeles International – another route where Level now flies on a seasonal basis.
But two months ago, IAG's Iberia subsidiary launched new service from SFO to Madrid, and Level's move there will keep the Spain service from the two sister companies in the same airport.
So far, Level's only U.S. routes are to Barcelona from the Bay Area and LAX, but the fledgling carrier is adding more A330s to its fleet with plans to base a third plane at Barcelona and to bring Paris Orly into its transatlantic network. Level will fly from Orly to Newark and Montreal, as well as the French islands of Martinique and Guadeloupe in the Caribbean.
Norwegian also flies from Oakland to London Gatwick, and last year IAG jumped into that route as well -- not with its Level subsidiary, but with British Airways. BA's other Bay Area London flights operate from SFO and San Jose to Heathrow, not Gatwick.
British Airways has also been converting some of its 777-200ERs to a higher-density configuration to compete with low-cost competition like Norwegian from London Gatwick, and it will put the aircraft onto some U.S. routes later this year. The three-class 777s will have 32 business class seats, 52 in premium economy and 252 in regular economy. They'll fly once a week to Gatwick from Ft. Lauderdale starting September 13, daily from New York JFK beginning July 8, once or twice a week from Orlando as of May 11, and twice a week from Tampa starting June 7.

LEVEL adds A330 and aims for Paris
LEVEL has welcomed the first A330-200 aircraft to its fleet as it prepares to add Paris Orly Airport (ORY) as a hub in July 2018. The new aircraft has a total of 314 seats, made up of 21 Premium Class and 293 Economy Class.
The Spanish airline plans to keep two A330s at its Paris Orly base, which will operate on the following services:
- to Montréal, three times a week from 2nd July 2018
- to Pointe à Pitre, Gudeloupe, four times a week from 3rd July 2018
- to Fort de France, Martinique, three times a week from 3rd September 2018
- to Newark, four times a week from 3rd September 2018

British Airways to offer new basic fares on long-haul routes
British Airways, the parent company of Level Airlines, have announced that passengers will now have to pay to check luggage on some long-haul routes. A new “basic” fare has been introduced for passengers who have only hand baggage, with tickets costing up to £60 less than the standard return fare, the airline said. Basic fare tickets went on sale on Wednesday for flights from London to Austin, Boston, Delhi, Denver, Dubai, Hong Kong, Oakland, Philadelphia, Punta Cana and Singapore. The cheapest fare – to Dubai – will cost £143 each way. Passengers will still be served complimentary food and drink and be able to take two items of hand luggage on board. But checking a bag for people flying on basic fare tickets will cost from £80 return, with seat selection starting at £20 each way. BA already offers this type of basic fare on its short-haul flights.

IAG in talks over new aircraft for low-cost airline Level
British Airways owner IAG is in talks about acquiring new aircraft for its Level low-cost long-haul brand, as it drives expansion of the airline, which was set up last year.
Level will have five Airbus A330 aircraft this year, which IAG CEO Willie Walsh said offered a more efficient way to get the operation off the ground than the newer 787 Dreamliner from Boeing.
He said the plan was for Level to grow to 15 aircraft in the short-term, by about 2022, with the possibility to grow further.
“We see an opportunity with Airbus and with Boeing. The 787 more and more we see as a future opportunity in the development of Level,” Walsh told analysts on an annual results call.

IAG Is Serious About Growing Its Low-Cost, Long-Haul Airline
IAG’s testing of the low-cost, long-haul market with a virtual airline seems to have paid off. Its success shows that the model is here to stay. We’ll be keeping a close eye on how this affects the legacy carriers, including those in IAG’s own brand stable.
When IAG launched Level, its low-cost, long-haul airline in March this year, nobody was quite sure whether it was something the company was genuine about or simply an attempt to outmuscle airlines like Norwegian, which were already active in the segment.
The fact that it was launched so quickly — and that it operated under Iberia’s air operator’s certificate, or AOC — gave the impression that it might not last long, especially as some previous airlines within airlines had largely been failures.
Seven months on and IAG Chief Executive Willie Walsh says the brand is “doing extremely well” and will shortly get its own air operator’s certificate, a dedicated CEO, and a second operating base. The company said in its third-quarter results released last week that the trading performance for Level was “positive” but did not give a specific revenue figure.
He continued: “We’ve not yet decided where we will base the AOC; we have options open to us, and we felt it would be better to allow the CEO when appointed to have some say in that.”

British Airways owner IAG launches mobile pay on new airline Level
The airline said it's the first to introduce the pair and pay technology (Source: Level)
British Airways owner IAG is rolling out mobile pay on new low-cost, long-haul airline Level so passengers can browse and buy products on board from their personal devices.
IAG said the platofrm was a universal one that it is looking at rolling out across its other airlines in the future.
The technology, called pair and pay, will enable customers to connect mobile devices with their individual seatback screen to buy food, drinks, Wi-Fi packages, and duty free products. IAG said that in the future, inflight entertainment including the latest film releases, TV shows and audio albums will also be available through the service.
Once selected items have been added to the shopping cart on the screen, passengers then connect their devices to the onboard network and pair their phone with the seatback, and can then use their phone to pay for the products.
The airline said the technology will enhance "Level's vision of modern, innovative flying, which puts the customer in control".
Level is IAG's fifth main airline brand along with Aer Lingus, British Airways, Iberia and Vueling.
Willie Walsh, IAG chief executive, has said the airline "will bring a stylish and modern approach to flying at prices that are even more affordable. It will benefit from having the strength of one of the world's largest airline groups behind it".
IAG has been upping its digital investment of late, announcing in April that it was investing in two startups that took part in its new global accelerator programme Hangar 51. And last month, it launched a second programme, which is based in Spain.
The successful startups receive 10 weeks of industry advice from the group's airlines to test and enhance their products.

LEVEL promises the first budget flights to South America
Level will began operations on 1st June when flight IB2623 takes off from Barcelona, bound for Los Angeles. This is what is being seen as a minor revolution for the air industry.
The flight departed at 3.40pm, and was scheduled to take 13 hours and 15 minutes to reach the California coast - the inaugural service flown by Level – a British-Spanish co-operation which is being marketed as the latest low-cost carrier.
America’s second biggest city is one of four destinations which will be served by the airline – the others are San Francisco’s metropolitan neighbour Oakland, the Caribbean resort area of Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, and Buenos Aires.
The latter city is significant. When services to the Argentinian capital commence later this month – they are slated to start on June 17 – they will be the first direct “budget” flights between Europe and South America. But this is the first instance of a “budget” air bridge between Europe and what is arguably the world’s most exotic continent for travellers. Level is not quite a dashing young start-up. It is the brainchild of IAG (International Consolidated Airlines Group), the British-Spanish multinational which was created by the merger of British Airways and Spanish national flag-carrier Iberia in 2011.
LEVEL inaugurated operations with its maiden flight from its Barcelona El Prat base to Los Angeles Int'l, United States, lifting off on Thursday, June 1.
The longhaul budget carrier will roll out flights to Oakland on June 2, Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic on June 10, and Buenos Aires Ezeiza on June 17. Operations are on-board a pair of A330-200s operated by fellow IAG International Airlines Group unit, Iberia (IB, Madrid Barajas). As previously reported, LEVEL will pursue its own Air Operator's Certificate (AOC) going forward. It is planning to operate five aircraft by 2018.
2 Airbus A330
These flight models holds 293 seats in Economy and 21 in Premium Economy.
