bmibaby add new service to Newquay - drop Cork

bmibaby, the low cost airline, has announced a new summer
service to Newquay from Birmingham International Airport.
The new route will operate from 22 May to 20 September
2009, on Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays
bmibaby is the only low cost airline to fly this route from
the airport and expects to carry over 20,000 passengers on
the new service over the summer months. Prices start
from just £13.99 one way including taxes and charges
Crawford Rix, managing director, bmibaby, said: "bmibaby
is proud to introduce a new route from Birmingham
International Airport to Newquay. This destination is currently
not served by any other airline from Birmingham, so by launching
this new service we are offering customers a unique summer
destination at fantastically low fares. "Newquay offers something
for everyone, from its stunning coastline to numerous golden
beaches which are great for walking and surfing. There is also
plenty to do for those who prefer dry land, from walks along the
dramatic coastline, to top class food at Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen
restaurant; visitors to Newquay will be spoilt for choice
"In the current economic climate the airline industry is seeing a
weakening in demand from consumers for impulsive city breaks
and an increase for typical beach destinations. In order to meet
the demand for more sunshine routes from the Midlands, we will
be replacing our city route from Birmingham to Cork with the
new route to Newquay. This will enable us to meet the high
consumer demand for services to beach destinations"
Paul Kehoe, Chief Executive Officer, Birmingham International
Airport, said: "It is excellent news for the Airport that Newquay
will again be available as a route from Birmingham through
bmibaby during the summer months. This route has operated
previously and has always been successful for the Airport and
the airlines that have operated it. It is important that during
these trying times that our airlines are able to be flexible in their
schedules in order to cater for the needs of our passengers"
Customers holding bookings from Birmingham to Cork for travel
after 29th March 2009 will be contacted by bmibaby as soon as
possible and offered an alternative flight or a full refund
