British Airways has bought six take-off and landing slots at Heathrow from British Midland International.

The deal, for an undisclosed sum, will increase owner International Consolidated Airlines' share of the slots at the airport to 45 per cent, with 44 per cent owned by BA and 1 per cent by Iberia, its other airline. BA will use the slots from late October for long and short-haul flights.
