UK budget carrier EasyJet has picked up several slots at London Gatwick and Bristol airports from the liquidators of collapsed leisure firm Thomas Cook Group.
EasyJet says it paid £36 million ($46 million) for the slots.
They include 12 summer slot pairs and eight winter slot pairs at London Gatwick. The carrier adds that its Bristol acquisition comprises six summer pairs and one winter pair.
"Contractual terms have concluded and the slots have been awarded to EasyJet," it says.
EasyJet is to detail its plans for the slots when it discloses its full-year financial results on 19 November.
Thomas Cook Group filed for liquidation in mid-September.
