bmi regional launches three new routes from Bristol: Paris, Düsseldorf and Nantes

Created: 18th Feb 2015

bmi regional is launching three new routes to Paris, Düsseldorf and Nantes, bringing the number of routes served by bmi regional from Bristol to eight, alongside Aberdeen, Hamburg, Munich, Frankfurt and Milan.

Paris and Düsseldorf flights commence on Monday April 27 2015, with Nantes flights starting July 4 2015, and operating throughout the summer months. Flights go on sale today.

Robert Sinclair, Chief Executive Officer at Bristol Airport, said: “These new flights will strengthen links to key markets in France and Germany for business and leisure passengers in the South West. Building on bmi regional’s existing services to Aberdeen, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich and Milan, these new destinations further enhance the airline’s growing base at Bristol Airport.

“Direct flights to European cities such as Paris, Düsseldorf and Nantes provide passengers with a convenient local alternative to the London airports, saving them time and money in the process, and bmi regional’s reputation for reliability and service will make this option even more attractive. The double-daily weekday service to the French capital’s major airport, Paris Charles de Gaulle, adds capacity to another major global hub and makes a same day return possible for business passengers.”

Cathal O’Connell CEO of bmi regional said: “bmi regional is delighted to launch these new routes from Bristol Airport today. Bristol is already a substantial hub for the airline, allowing us to service some of Europe’s most exciting business and leisure destinations. Flying twice a day to Paris means that business travellers can now have a full day of business in the French capital, rather than having to overnight. Düsseldorf is the centre of the Rhine-Ruhr and an international business and financial centre, renowned for its fashion and trade fairs, and bmi regional the only airline to connect businesses in the South West directly to the capital of North Rhine-Westphalia. Nantes is the gateway to the Loire region, and the perfect place for a weekend break, or a holiday among the world famous vineyards and chateaux”.

James Durie, Executive, Director of Bristol Chamber of Commerce at Business West, said:" Adding these three new bmi regional routes from Bristol Airport gives business across our region and beyond better connections to two of our most important trade markets. In the South West, we have 5,000 companies who are interested in or already exporting to France and Germany and Bristol Airport also serves businesses from areas beyond such as South Wales. With Bristol as 2015 European Green Capital, the international spotlight is increasingly on us and we very much welcome this investment by bmi regional giving us links to these European cities. These new links will help stimulate our visitor economy and other investment into Bristol and the South West”.
