Sánchez-Prieto will move into his new post from his current role as Iberia’s CFO. In his new role he will report to IAG CEO Willie Walsh and join IAG’s management committee.

“Javier has an excellent track record at Iberia and has been instrumental in achieving the airline’s financial turnaround,” Walsh said. “I’m confident that he will continue the great progress that Vueling has made the airline has expanded profitably across Europe while remaining focused on keeping costs low. Javier will develop that strategy.”

Sánchez-Prieto joined Iberia in 2013, having previously been CFO at the Spanish flag carrier’s low-cost arm, Iberia Express since its formation in 2012.
