bmi regional launches 3 new routes from Birmingham Airport to Gothenburg, Lyon and Toulouse

bmi regional today/Thursday 24 January 2013 announced the launch of three new European
routes from Birmingham Airport. The airline continues its network expansion with the launch
of routes from Birmingham to three important European cities: Gothenburg, Lyon and Toulouse
Cathal O’Connell, chief executive, bmi regional said: "The launch of these routes to Gothenburg,
Lyon and Toulouse is a continuation of bmi regional’s promise to serve key economic and tourism
hubs across Europe. Launching our first services from Birmingham Airport is an indication of our
commitment to UK regions and a significant investment to position the airline for growth"
"bmi regional’s choice of destinations is based on business and leisure customer demand. Toulouse
is a significant base for the aerospace business, Gothenburg and Lyon are home to major car
manufacturing sites as well as high-tech industries. These three European cities are great destinations
for leisure customers as well, boasting Unesco Heritage Sites, amazing foods and great outdoor
activities nearby. With fares starting from £59 each way, we also expect to see a boost in both
inbound visitors to the Birmingham and the Midlands", said O’Connell
William Pearson, Aviation Development Director at Birmingham Airport, said: "It is fantastic news
that bmi regional has chosen to launch these routes as its first services from Birmingham. These
three new routes, operated on an Embraer jet aircraft, are currently unserved from the Airport,
meaning passengers have even more choice from their airport to visit these great destinations. 
As an Airport we strive to cater for all our passengers and having bmi regional on board as a
full service airline complements our portfolio.  We look forward to working with bmi regional
to develop these services and further additional services in the future"
Non-stop flights to Gothenburg, Lyon and Toulouse from Birmingham commence on
Monday 13 May 2013 with six flights on each route per week
The new routes go on sale on on Tuesday 5 February 2013
