bmi regional announced the launch of a new codeshare partnership with Italian airline Air Dolomiti, adding five new routes to its network.
bmi regional customers are now able to book connecting flights operated by Air Dolomiti between bmi regional’s network to/from Munich via the Munich Gateway and the following five Italian destinations:
- Venice – up to 3 daily flights
- Verona – up to 3 daily flights
- Bari – up to 2 daily flights
- Bologna – up to 2 daily flights
- Florence – up to 3 daily flights
Air Dolomiti already has a strong existing relationship with bmi regional, working as its Italian General Sales Agent with a view of growing the airline’s presence in the Italian market.
The new code-share routes are the next step in bmi regional’s ongoing network development from its Munich hub. Over the past six months, it has extended its frequency on several existing routes from Munich and launched a new route to Lublin in Poland. In November 2017, bmi regional will also be launching a new route between Munich and Saarbrücken in the west of Germany. The short, one hour, hop will be operated twice daily on weekdays, and once on Saturday and Sunday.
Jochen Schnadt, chief commercial officer of bmi regional, said:
“The extension of our relationship with Air Dolomiti to include code-share cooperation is a logical next step for bmi regional. The company shares our commitment to providing a quality, convenient product with excellent customer service, and our customers will now have access to a range of excellent routes into Italy from our all-important Munich hub. These new routes allow our customers from our existing markets linked to Munich to also enjoy convenient connections to some of Italy’s most exciting locations.”
Paolo Sgaramella, Vice President Commercial of Air Dolomiti, added:
“Over the past year, we have developed an excellent, professional working relationship with bmi regional and we’re delighted to be able to extend it in this way. We look forward to welcoming bmi regional’s customers on board our Air Dolomiti services.”
