EasyJet to Purchase GB Airways

Not much to write about today, so I’ll pass on something you won’t care about:  EasyJet is purchasing former British Airways partner GB Airways.  The small carrier primarily flies to leisure destinations in Europe and North Africa, and EasyJet will use the purchase to strengthen their holiday flights out of Gatwick (the purchase does not include GB’s slots at Heathrow).  Imagine JetBlue buying Comair and you’ll get the point.
