bmi regional expands Lufthansa codeshare deal

bmi regional will commence flights from Rotterdam, The Netherlands, Liege, Belgium and Bern, Switzerland to the Bavarian capital, Munich on March 29th 2015.

The flights will operate the flights in partnership with Lufthansa as code-share flights with joint BM and LH flight numbers.

The airline has tailored the schedule from each city to ensure seamless travel connections for business and leisure travellers via Lufthansa’s Munich network of over 200 global destinations.

Cathal O’Connell, chief executive, bmi regional, said: “These new routes represent a significant step forward for bmi regional and further strengthens our relationship with Lufthansa.

“Our experience with Munich from Bristol has shown that the airport is both a great destination and a major hub with excellent connection opportunities.

“We have researched the market extensively, and chose Rotterdam, Liege and Bern as the ideal cities to extend our presence in Europe.”

Thomas Klühr, member of the Lufthansa Airlines Board, responsible for finance and the Lufthansa Munich hub said: “Lufthansa is pleased to expand our partnership with bmi regional.

“Rotterdam, Liege and Bern are very important markets for us, and our partnership with bmi regional is perfect for these routes.

“Passengers connecting through Munich will have quick, easy and smooth transition to our 120 worldwide destinations in Europe, Asia, Middle East, North and South America and Africa.”

The move strengthens bmi regional’s network presence at Munich Airport with the German carrier. bmi regional already flies twice a day connecting Bristol with the Bavarian capital in partnership with Lufthansa.
