Boost for business travellers in the South West as bmi regional increases and improves key business routes
Created: 21st Mar 2016
Following on from the success of its existing seven routes out of Bristol Airport, bmi regional has made some exciting changes and improvements to its schedule for summer 2016 by adding additional rotations and improving schedules.
The new 2016 summer schedule adds a further ten flights to bmi regional’s already convenient timetable, cementing the airline’s position as the leading choice for flexible and convenient business travel from Bristol.
Better timings to Paris
The introduction of a new evening rotation from Bristol to Paris allows greater flexibility for day trippers whether travelling to a sports match, for business or for leisure. The summer 2016 schedule offers up to twice daily flights direct from Bristol to Paris (CDG) at fares as low as £49 one way.
Enhanced connectivity via Frankfurt
The new summer schedule from Bristol to Frankfurt features three daily weekday rotations with up to twice daily rotations on weekends. All flights offer convenient morning, afternoon and evening schedules. The improvements to the existing schedule means passengers will enjoy improved connectivity with codeshare partner Lufthansa, enabling speedy links to and from a further 200 onward destinations. bmi regional fares from Bristol to Frankfurt start from £81 one way.
New double daily service to Düsseldorf
With business travel at its core, bmi regional is increasing services to Düsseldorf on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays to twice daily, with the new timings meaning passengers can travel to the city and back in the same day via early morning and evening slots. Fares to Dusseldorf cost from £79 one way.
Additional Munich rotation
As one of bmi regional’s most popular routes, Bristol to Munich now has a new Monday morning rotation. The new flights depart Bristol at 06.30am, arriving in Munich at 09.30, perfect for early Monday meetings. The return flight departs Munich at 10.40, arriving in Bristol at 11.40. Fares cost from £81 one way.
All fares with bmi regional include 20kg hold luggage allowance, complimentary in-flight drinks and snacks, allocated leather seating and speedy 30 minute check-ins.
Commenting on the service improvements, Chief Commercial Officer Jochen Schnadt said: “Bristol Airport is a key UK hub for bmi regional and one which we are continually growing and developing. With our convenient, comfortable and quality product we are all about connecting businesses and regions and these changes and additions to our network and schedule from the South West are a direct response to our customers’ requirements for improved connectivity.”
Shaun Browne, Bristol Airport’s Aviation Director said: “We are delighted with bmi regional’s expansion of its Bristol services. In particular the improved benefits of the additional flights to Dusseldorf which will offer a day return product on key days of the week. The new schedule on Paris Charles de Gaulle is also welcome as it provides improved connectivity for business and leisure passengers from both the UK and France.”
