bmi regional has announced it will be increasing frequencies and adding a new route from its Munich hub, following the success of the airline’s growth out of the Bavarian capital in 2016.
Starting on 27 March 2017, bmi regional will operate daily flights from Munich to Lublin, its first destination in Poland. The airline will also be increasing the frequency of its popular flights between Munich and Rostock in northern Germany, Norrköping in Sweden and Brno in the Czech Republic.
- Munich – Rostock will grow to twice daily Sunday to Friday, with a single daily on Saturday
- Munich – Norrköping will grow to twice daily Monday to Friday, and once daily on Sunday
- Munich – Brno will grow to twice daily Monday to Friday, with a single daily on Saturday and Sunday
In response to customer feedback, bmi regional will additionally be amending its timings on the Munich – Milan Bergamo service for the improved convenience of business customers traveling between the industrial heartlands of northern Italy and southern Germany.
The new flights will open up enhanced connections to a number of attractive long haul destinations, via bmi regional’s codeshare agreement with Lufthansa, including Beijing, Delhi, Washington DC, Mumbai, Los Angeles and Chicago, while equally improving schedules for customers travelling from/to Munich to bmi regional’s destinations served from the Munich Hub.
Jochen Schnadt, chief commercial officer of bmi regional said:
“Last year was a period of unprecedented growth for bmi regional in Munich, adding flight rotations from existing successful routes including Bristol and launching new routes from Milan Bergamo, Rostock, Southampton and Norrköping.
“In 2017, we are excited to be building on the excellent customer response to these new routes by offering our Munich customers improved convenience, alongside the continued service, efficiency and value that they expect from bmi regional. The additional flights will mean that all Munich services are now double daily, with the exception of the brand new Lublin flight.”
“Lublin will be our first destination in Poland. We have invested in this route due to a strong corporate demand plus our codeshare agreement with Lufthansa offers over 200 connections to a wider international network via Munich.”
