British Airways owner IAG has bought valuable take-off and landing slots at Gatwick being sold by the administrator of collapsed Monarch in a multi-million pound deal.

IAG has won the bulk of the failed airline’s slots at the UK’s second-busiest airport after submitting a significant bid that trumped rival carriers.

IAG, which also owns  BA, Iberia and Vueling in Spain, is trying  to increase frequencies and add new routes from Gatwick.
