British Airways and Iberia Airlines have merged, becoming the third-largest carrier in the Europe market (Air France-KLM is first and Deutsche Lufthansa is second), pending approval from the UK High Court on Jan. 19.

Though the new corporation will be called International Airline Group, the two airlines will continue to operate under their respective brand names, coordinating flight schedules and providing more code-sharing flights.
