bmi has announced plans to launch a new route from Bristol to Gothenburg.
Launching on January 22nd, bmi will be operating a twice weekly route between the two cities.
This brings the number of destinations served by bmi from Bristol to nine.
The bmi network out of Bristol includes Paris, Milan, Munich, Brussels, Frankfurt, Dusseldorf, Hamburg and Aberdeen.
Bristol is bmi’s biggest UK hub and with onward connections via the likes of Munich, Brussels and Frankfurt, customers from the south-west can travel further into Europe and other global destinations.
Gothenburg is the airline’s first Swedish route from Bristol.
It is the location of Scandinavia’s largest port and is a hub for global trade, currently enjoying unprecedented economic growth.
It is a popular mini break destination thanks to its fabulous food, eclectic culture and vibrant nightlife, as well as being the gateway to the stunning coast of West Sweden.
Commenting on the launch, bmi chief commercial officer, Jochen Schnadt said: “As part of our on-going strategy to connect key business regions, it was a natural choice to increase our service offering to/from Gothenburg by adding a further Gothenburg Route to our network connecting Sweden’s second largest city to our largest UK Base in Bristol.
“Given our experiences on the Birmingham to Gothenburg market so far, we believe this new route will prove attractive to business as well as leisure customers alike enjoying bmi’s service of fast and convenient air-services.”
The route will fly out of Bristol on a Monday and Thursday, departing Bristol at 13:40, arriving Gothenburg at 16:50.
The return flights will depart Gothenburg on Tuesdays at 14:40 and arrive in Bristol at 16:00 and on Fridays, departing Gothenburg at 11:40, arriving Bristol at 13:00.
