Brexit is a frustration but airlines can handle it, IAG's Walsh says

BRUSSELS, March 6 (Reuters) - A lack of clarity over Brexit is a frustration for European airlines but not a concern as carriers should be able to manage even if Britain leaves the European Union without a deal, IAG chief executive Willie Walsh said on Wednesday.

“I don’t think it’s concern that we’ve expressed — it’s frustration ... We do really need the politicians to resolve this,” Walsh said at the Airline for Europe summit in Brussels.

“The industry manages (these uncertainties) better than any other industry ... I’m fairly confident that IAG and other airlines will be able to manage this situation whatever happens.” (Reporting by Alistair Smout and Tim Hepher; Editing by Catherine Evans)
