bmi regional to launch Leeds - Copenhagen

bmi regional is launching daily direct air links between Leeds Bradford International Airport and Copenhagen. The new route goes on sale today (Friday 24 January) and takes off on 7 April.

The airline, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of bmi, the UK`s second largest full service scheduled airline, will operate the route using a 49 seat Embraer jet aircraft, offering both business and economy classes. Fares start from £88 one way.*

bmi regional is already the biggest operator at Leeds Bradford International and the new service represents a significant expansion of operations for the airline, which currently flies direct to Brussels, Cork, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Jersey, London Heathrow and Paris Charles de Gaulle from the airport.

Alex Grant, managing director of bmi regional, said:

“The launch of this new route is proof that we are committed to bringing competitive services to passengers travelling from Leeds Bradford. It will build on the success of the seven existing direct routes we currently operate from the airport and provide yet more travelling choice for the people of Yorkshire.


“We see the introduction of services operated by bmi regional as an ideal opportunity for the airline to bring its excellent levels of service and extremely competitive prices to air services linking these two destinations.”

Ed Anderson, managing director of Leeds Bradford International Airport, added:

“What fantastic news for the people of Yorkshire! Business and leisure travellers alike will benefit from this new route with bmi regional.”
