Bankim Thanki QC and Simon Atrill, instructed by Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, appeared for bmi in a scarce capacity hearing before the CAA on 8-9 September to allocate 3 new frequencies on the Cairo-London route.  The new frequencies were agreed following bilateral discussions between the United Kingdom and Egyptian governments in June.  British Airways and easyJet also applied for the same frequencies and the CAA’s decision is expected in the next few weeks.
