Qatar Airways denies interest in parent of British Airways, Iberia

Akbar Al Baker, the chief executive of Qatar Airways, has denied the Gulf carrier is seeking to acquire a stake in Spanish banking conglomerate Bankia, the parent of British Airways and Iberia, Financial Times has reported. He also said he was "not aware" that any other Qatari entity had an interest in the Bankia stake. "Any other entity will not get into any kind of discussion in an airline, or an airline stake, without asking Qatar Airways," said Al Baker.
