bmi increases India service

The number of international passengers jetting out of Heathrow with bmi is set to increase following the launch of additional services to India.

Starting Saturday 22 April, bmi increases its four times weekly direct service to Mumbai to daily. This follows a successful start to route, which celebrates its first anniversary in May.

The additional services will add more flexibility and choice for passengers travelling to Mumbai and those connecting for travel to onward points in the sub continent.

Nigel Turner, bmi chief executive officer, said: “Just one year ago, the Mumbai route entered the bmi history books by becoming our first ever long haul route from London Heathrow and we have been thoroughly encouraged by this very positive start. Our service has been warmly welcomed by the discerning traveller who has a strong desire for quality and choice.

“As we increase our operation to a daily service, we will further establish our presence and reputation in the Indian market whilst at the same time enhance our long haul profile at London Heathrow. Our willingness and desire to provide much needed competition on other long haul routes from Heathrow in the future remains determined.”


Flights are operated by a bmi A330 aircraft, featuring the award winning three class cabin product, including ‘the business’ which features bmi’s dedicated onboard chefs.
