What does BMI mean?
- British Midland Airways Limited was an airline with its head office in Donington Hall in Castle Donington, close to East Midlands Airport, in the United Kingdom. It was acquired by International Airlines Group in April 2012 and was integrated into British Airways by 27 October 2012. The airline flew to destinations in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Central Asia from its operational base at London Heathrow Airport, where at its peak it held 11 per cent of all takeoff and landing slots and operated over 2,000 flights a week. BMI was a member of Star Alliance until it withdrew on 20 April 2012. The airline was a wholly owned subsidiary of IAG, the owners of BA, who announced an agreement in December 2011 to buy the airline from Lufthansa. The deal was completed on 20 April 2012 and also included subsidiaries Bmibaby and BMI Regional, although IAG did not wish to retain either. BMI Regional was sold to Sector Aviation Holdings in May 2012, and Bmibaby closed down in September 2012. British Midland Airways Limited held a Civil Aviation Authority Type A Operating Licence, permitting it to carry passengers, cargo and mail on aircraft with 20 or more seats.
