British Midland (BMI) "will begin to withdraw from Star Alliance" once its sale to British Airways parent International Airlines Group closes on or around April 20, according to a post on the carrier's Facebook page. IAG last November agreed to buy BMI from Lufthansa, and the European Commission last week approved the sale with conditions. IAG carriers BA and Iberia are members of the Oneworld alliance.
