Jan 18, 2017: bmi regional is creating a new hub at Birmingham Airport, launching three exciting new European routes from the UK’s second city. The new routes to Graz (Austria), Nuremburg (Germany) and Gothenburg (Sweden) will start in early 2017.
The Graz flight will commence on February 27, 2017, initially with a twice weekly service on Mondays and Fridays, increasing to four times weekly in March.
The Nuremberg and Gothenburg routes will launch on May 8, 2017, with six return flights per week.
Launching a new base at Birmingham, bmi regional’s new destinations from the Midlands will offer exciting opportunities for customers looking for new and inspiring experiences in 2017.
Jochen Schnadt, chief commercial officer, bmi regional, said, “bmi regional has always offered customers an array of up and coming destinations to explore and enjoy, and we anticipate all three routes to be popular. Given the many issues we are facing in different parts of Europe and the world these days, many people are looking for new experiences in more familiar regions and our new destinations have an abundance of interesting and exciting experiences to offer to customers.”
William Pearson, Aviation director of Birmingham Airport, said, “All three routes are currently un-served from Birmingham, so we thank bmi regional for filling these gaps and offering leisure travellers the chance to visit these vibrant city break destinations in Sweden, Austria and Germany with an airline that offers excellent service, efficiency and value.”
