bmi expands Virgin codeshare

bmi has added nine new destinations to its growing codeshare route network from London Heathrow after expanding its codeshare agreement with Virgin Atlantic. The new codeshare arrangements cover routes between the USA and bmi’s growing Middle East and Russia and CIS network.  Under the agreement, which commences today, bmi can sell direct flights between London Heathrow and the USA gateways of Chicago, Los Angeles, Washington, San Francisco, Boston and Miami, as well as the cities of Dubai, Nairobi and Delhi, with a bmi marketing codeshare flight number (BD) on flights operated by Virgin Atlantic.

Katherine Gershon, sales & marketing director, said: “We are delighted to be extending our network through this codeshare deal with Virgin Atlantic, offering our customers an even greater choice of international destinations. bmi customers in the North of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland can now book bmi all the way to the USA.”
