bmibaby launches new routes

bmibaby has announced new routes for summer 2009 from East Midlands Airport to Almeria, Manchester to Toulouse and Amsterdam, and Cardiff to Lisbon.
The announcement comes as part of bmibaby’s summer 2009 programme launch. Nine other European routes also go on sale today to Malaga, Alicante, Bordeaux, Faro, Murcia, Palma, Nice, Perpignan and Rome Fiumicino.

Crawford Rix, managing director, bmibaby, said: “Despite the challenging market conditions, bmibaby continues to go from strength to strength.  We’re proud to launch our summer 2009 schedule with even more new routes from the regions.

“We decided to launch our summer flying schedule earlier this year, not only to give people something to look forward too, but also to meet consumer demand.  Customers have been contacting us asking when they can book next year’s flights, this shows that the appetite for travel is still very much alive and kicking!

“I strongly believe that the combination of bmibaby’s low fares and great service is fuelling the demand for our flights, and as result we will continue to offer new destinations.  We not only offer benefits such as allocated seating for everyone, thus saving the chaotic scramble for seats, but customers can also join bmi diamond club, the UK’s most generous frequent flier programme.
