Commenting on the expansion, Jochen Schnadt, Chief Commercial Officer said: “These three new routes, in addition to the recently announced Southampton – Munich route mark a step change for bmi regional, and establish us as a truly European brand with wings around the world. Like all existing bmi regional services to Frankfurt and Munich, these new routes will also be operated as code-share flights with our Partner Lufthansa. Munich is now our largest hub in the heart of Europe with a total of eight routes and more than 160 weekly flights. With this significant expansion increasing seats to and from Munich by more than 70% compared to last year our partnership with Lufthansa also grows, and, in doing so, connects us and our passengers to a wide range of global destinations. We are thrilled to be bringing our brand with its professional and reliable service to new audiences, both business and leisure. We’ll be offering great value fares and convenient travel times, thus positioning bmi regional as the perfect choice for travelling within Europe and beyond.”
