IAG's Spanish subsidiary Iberia owns 45.85% of Vueling shares but will not participate in the offer. Vueling would remain a standalone unit within IAG.

The offer is open until April 19th, which extends the acceptance period by nine days to allow Vueling shareholders more time to assess.

The takeover of Vueling is part of IAG's overhaul plan of its Spanish operations after Iberia unit pushed the group to a €23m loss last year.
