bmi hits four year milestone

bmibaby is preparing to
celebrate four years of low cost flying. Over the past four years bmibaby has slashed its fares by 60% with
passengers now able to book flights from just £14.99 one way, including
taxes and charges, representing a great deal for consumers across the UK.
Over 14 million passengers have already booked to fly with bmibaby and the
airline now offers flights from 5 UK bases at Birmingham, Cardiff, Durham
Tees Valley, Manchester and Nottingham East Midlands airports.

Since 2002, 17 additional aircraft have been added to bmibaby’s fleet,
bringing the total to 19 and this summer the airline will operate almost
4,000 flights every month throughout Europe.  The number of destinations
offered has also more than doubled with locations added in Spain, France and
Ireland. New routes for 2006 include flights between Nottingham East
Midlands and Paris (CDG); Manchester to Perpignan and Newquay; Durham Tees
Valley to Knock and Newquay and Cardiff to Amsterdam, Glasgow
(International) and Belfast (International).


David Bryon, bmibaby’s managing director, added: “We are very proud of what bmibaby has achieved to date. We have firmly
established ourselves as one of the UK’s leading low cost airlines and are
continuing to grow at a phenomenal rate, having just welcomed three
additional aircraft into the fleet and a number of exciting new routes. Our
aggressive growth strategy will continue over the coming years as we welcome
more aircraft, new destinations and consistently lower fares.”
