bmi regional strengthens partnership with Brussels Airlines

bmi regional

Full codeshare agreement on Brussels-East Midlands route.

bmi regional has strengthened its existing partnership with Brussels Airlines by operating additional flights for the Belgium carrier within Europe. A bmi regional-operated service from Brussels to Strasbourg will begin on December 7, timed to connect with the East Midlands-Brussels service, offering a smooth journey for business travellers. In addition a new Brussels – Nuremberg service will be launched by Brussels Airlines in February 2016 and this will also be operated by bmi regional.

The new services sit alongside the current East Midlands-Brussels route which will become a full codeshare service with Brussels Airlines. The agreement will provide passengers with hugely enhanced connectivity from the UK via Brussels to a network of destinations within Europe, Africa and Asia providing customers with a seamless service through to their final destination.

The East Midlands-Brussels service will continue to operate twice daily on weekdays and once on Sundays, on a 49-seater Embraer 145 aircraft. Flight times have been improved to enable UK business travellers to spend a full day in Brussels and return in the evening, without having to overnight in the city.

Commenting on the new agreement, bmi regional Chief Commercial Officer, Jochen Schnadt said: “This signifies a growing presence of bmi regional at Brussels Airport and greater co-operation with Brussels Airlines – a partnership that has gone from strength to strength since the launch of our first codeshare in March 2014 on our Brussels-Newcastle route.

Always listening to our customers this new agreement has also facilitated a change in schedules resulting in flight times between East Midlands and Brussels, optimised for business requirements in both markets.”
