EasyJet buys Thomas Cook flight slots at Gatwick and Bristol



EasyJet has paid £36 million for all of Thomas Cook's take-off and landing slots at Gatwick and Bristol airports.





The airline has acquired 27 slot pairs in total, consisting of 12 summer  and eight winter slot pairs at Gatwick as well as six summer slot pairs and one winter at Bristol.


The slots became available following the collapse of Thomas Cook in September.


EasyJet beat off competition from British Airways, Wizz Air and Virgin for the Gatwick slots and is now able to significantly expand its operation.


More details of its future expansion plans for the slots will be revealed on November 19 when easyJet releases its full-year results.


The low-cost carrier added contractual terms over the new slots have been concluded with Thomas Cook's liquidators.


After the easyJet announcement, Jet2.com said it had snapped up Thomas Cook slots at three other UK airports.
