Low cost airline bmibaby has once again increased the number

Low cost airline bmibaby has once again increased the number of flights on its service between Birmingham Airport and Nice to accommodate the large number of delegates heading to the South of France for the MIPIM conference next month.

Running from 8-11 March 2011, MIPIM targets international property professionals. The event brings together more than 17,000 delegates from all over the world for four days of seminars, networking and business development.

In response to demand, bmibaby has added six extra flights between Birmingham and Nice for the event. In total the airline will operate ten flights between Birmingham and Nice over the course of the event, allowing people of the region to travel to and from MIPIM. According to the airline, the flights are already proving popular and the airline expects to carry around 1,400 passengers during this time.

Julian Carr, managing director, bmibaby, said: “MIPIM continues to be the ‘must attend’ event for property professionals from across the globe. We are delighted to be able to provide these additional services to meet the increased demand from industry leaders in the West Midlands region wishing to attend. Last year we were seeing flights at up to 99 per cent capacity and we expect this to repeat in 2011.”

Mike Whitby, Leader of Birmingham City Council, comments: “MIPIM is a significant annual event for property professionals across the Midlands and the additional flights offered by bmibaby for the event are very welcomed. Demand is always high at this time and with extra bmibaby seats between Birmingham and Nice, greater choice and flexibility can be enjoyed by those travelling to MIPIM next month.”
