British Airways’ parent IAG has reached agreement with Lufthansa to purchase bmi British Midland International for a reported £300 million.

British Airways will also be keen to bring the former British Mediterranean Airways routes back under the BA banner. The deal would be solely for bmi British Midland International mainline and would not include bmi Regional or low cost bmibaby.
