Airline group IAG saw operating profit before exceptional items rise by 20.7% during the third quarter.
The group saw total operating profit hit £1.2m during the quarter, a 20.7% rise on the same period last year.
IAG also saw total revenue rise by 2% to £5.8bn despite a series of setbacks such as bad weather and terror attacks.
Willie Walsh, IAG CEO, said: "We're reporting another strong quarter with an operating profit up 20.7% to £1.2m before exceptional items.
"All our companies performed well. Passenger unit revenue was up 2.2% at constant currency boosted by improvements in the Spanish and Latin American markets.
“Our commercial performance was good despite underlying disruption from severe weather and terrorism. IAG Cargo improved in the quarter due to stronger Asia Pacific demand compared to last year.”
At current fuel prices and exchange rates, IAG expects its operating profit for 2017 to be around £2.66bn before exceptional items.
