bmibaby Packs Them Off to Rugby

6th Mar 2003

bmibaby, the low cost airline for Wales, is packing in bumper loads of Rugby fans to Edinburgh in the run up to the weekend.

Today and tomorrow bmibaby flights from Cardiff to Edinburgh are fully booked as rugby fans jet off to support Wales in this weekend`s clash with Scotland.

Sue Underwood, head of sales and marketing for bmibaby said:
Ê“Both of our services to Edinburgh today and our two services tomorrow are full of, what we suspect to be, fans going out to see the rugby. Whilst Edinburgh remains one of our top selling routes from Cardiff, all seats are full leading up to this weekend.
“We believe that low cost air travel has opened wider and more frequent opportunities to getaway. With tickets from just £10 one way, it`s almost as cheap to go away for the weekend as it is to stay at home and watch the rugby on the television.”
bmibaby daily direct flights to Edinburgh depart Cardiff at 0700 and 1650. Flights can be booked by logging on to or by calling reservations on 0870 264 2229.
