IAG share price is down on the day as travel stocks take a hit from the surge in the COVID-19 Delta cases. As new lockdowns are being put in place in several countries, the prospect of a return of summer travel due to vaccinations continues to dim.
This month, the IAG share price has been under pressure as the consolidated airline company continues to smart from the $2.44billion H1 2021 loss. The company also reported that its second-quarter passenger capacity remained at 22% of its 2019 levels.

IAG shares top the losers’ chart on the FTSE 100, down 2.47%.
