FTSE 100 movers: Airlines, BP in the red

16:05, 7th May 2024

London's FTSE 100 was up 1.2% at 8,313.67 in afternoon trade on Tuesday.
EasyJet and BA and Iberia owner IAG both flew lower after Ryanair chief executive Michael O'Leary told reporters in Brussels that ticket fare prices this summer were likely going to be lower than previously expected.

BP was also in the red after it reported a fall in first-quarter profit on the back of lower oil and gas prices, an outage at a US refinery and "significantly weaker" fuels margins. It also started a $1.75bn share buyback.

Underlying replacement cost profit for the quarter was $2.7bn, compared with $5bn a year earlier and $3bn for the final three months of 2023, BP said.
