IAG SA Chief Executive Officer Willie Walsh said the parent of British Airways is in no rush to complete a takeover of Irish carrier Aer Lingus Group Plc as he continues to negotiate with the Irish government that’s keen to see him meet guarantees.

“We’re very relaxed about it at this stage,” Walsh told journalists on a conference call on Thursday as the company kept its guidance for full-year earnings unchanged. “We’re not under any pressure, nor are we intending to put any pressure on anybody involved in the process.”
