It seems according to http://www.thebasource.com/ that IAG have purchased 6 pairs of slots at London Heathrow from BMI.
According to the site, the six pairs of daily slots will start to be used from late October with both longhaul and shorthaul expansion.
Whilst 6 pairs is not a lot, it’s still a fair lump. Early indications suggest that slots from the Berlin and Edinburgh have been hit, as well as some of the slots operated for Lufthansa Italia (itself due to close at the end of October).
Where else the hit will come from has yet to be revealed, but it’s a certainty to say we’ll find out sooner rather than later…
