BA owner IAG expands budget airline Level to short-haul routes

British Airways' owner IAG is expanding its low-cost long-haul airline Level further by launching short-haul routes from a base in Austria.

Level started in Barcelona last March to compete with other long-haul budget airlines, such as Norwegian Air Shuttle and Wow Air.
