bmi has announced plans to expand the Paris CDG service from its Bristol hub, with increased frequencies effective from May 14, 2018.
The airline, which currently flies twice daily between Bristol and Paris, said that it will further add three flights a week – on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. As per the revised schedule, starting May 14, the Bristol – Paris Charles de Gaulle route will operate thrice daily on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, twice daily on Tuesdays and Fridays, and a service on Sundays.
In addition, bmi also enables business and leisure travellers from the South West to connect three times daily to Frankfurt and twice daily to Munich, offering them to travel across Europe and further afield, via both Munich and Frankfurt hubs and also its codeshare agreement with Lufthansa and Air Dolomiti.
Jochen Schnadt, Chief Commercial Officer of bmi, commented, ‘Providing a convenient, quality air link between the South West / South Wales and Europe’s most prominent business and leisure destinations has always been a priority for bmi, and we are delighted to continue to build the network at our Bristol base.
‘Having consistently invested in our service offering from our Bristol hub, manifesting itself in increased frequencies on key business routes as well as new destinations such as our recently launched Bristol to Gothenburg service, we believe these additional flights between Paris and Bristol will offer our customers an even greater choice, with greatly improved convenience and flexibility, alongside the continued service, efficiency and value that our customers expect from bmi. With the strong affinity between the Paris Metropolitan region and the South West / South Wales, especially in the energy and aerospace industries space, increasing our service offering now to 14x weekly flights in either direction, we are looking to directly address our customers’ needs.’
Nigel Scott, Business Development Director, Bristol Airport added, ‘We are delighted bmi regional will increase the capacity on flights between Bristol and Paris (Charles de Gaulle) airports. This will provide improved services to a European hub airport offering world-wide connections whether for business or leisure.’
