Slots deal for London

The London office of the professional services firm Mazars, acting as a monitoring trustee on behalf of the UK government Competition and Markets Authority (CMA), has invited airlines to apply for slots for three London – US routes released by a partnership comprising American Airlines, British Airways, Aer Lingus, Iberia and Finnair.

Prospective carriers only have until 1 July to declare their interest in slots for daily services from London to each of Boston, Dallas/Fort Worth and Miami International with a choice of Gatwick or Heathrow.

Mazars will then quickly evaluate the applications to verify whether the airlines meet the criteria for new entrants and communicate its ruling by 22 July.

Subsequently, approved airlines will have until 7 October to submit a final application for the slots, which will be awarded for up to four IATA seasons starting with the summer 2022 season in late March 2022 and ending with the inter 2023/24 season in late March 2024.

It is hoped that by summer 2024 the pandemic will be behind us and a permanent slot arrangement can be put in place.
