IAG/bmi: Summer 2023 Remedy Slot Application Process

Case M.6447 IAG/bmi – Slot Release Procedure for Summer 2023

In March 2012, the European Commission (EC) granted regulatory clearance to the acquisition by International Consolidated Airlines Group (IAG) of British Midland Limited (bmi), subject to the Commitments entered into by IAG to release London Heathrow (LHR) slot pairs on selected short-haul and long-haul city pairs.

In order to resolve the competition concerns raised by the EC, IAG was obliged to make a number of daily landing and take-off slots available at LHR.

For the IATA Summer 2023 Season, three (3) slot pairs will be available for each day of the week. In addition, there will be four (4) slots pairs available on Saturday only and two (2) slot pairs available on Sunday only (27 slot pairs in total). These slot pairs may be used for operations on LHR-Aberdeen, LHR-Edinburgh, LHR-Nice, LHR-Cairo and LHR-Riyadh only.

Please see the link for further details on the process that must be followed by airlines wishing to apply for these slots.
