flybmi has announced the launch of a daily service between Leeds Bradford Airport and Munich in Germany, commencing on the April 8th.
The new route provides business and leisure travellers in the north of England with a convenient link to Bavaria’s capital city; a key business destination and a cultural hot spot, ideal for short breaks.
Commenting on the launch, flybmi managing director, Jochen Schnadt, said: “As part of our on-going strategy to link key business hubs throughout Europe, it was a natural choice to connect the west Yorkshire region via the Leeds Bradford hub to Germany’s third largest city.
“We believe that this route will be popular with business and leisure travellers alike who will benefit from flybmi’s fast and efficient service and in time, we hope to expand our operations to include additional services from Leeds Bradford.”
Munich is also home to the annual Oktoberfest where millions of people flock each year to enjoy over two weeks of celebrations and beer drinking.
In 2019, the festival takes place from the September 21st-October 6th.
Furthermore, Munich is a convenient gateway to the Alps, perfect for winter and summer sports.
David Laws, chief executive at Leeds Bradford Airport, said: “We are delighted to welcome flybmi to Leeds Bradford Airport with this exciting announcement of our new Munich service.
“Munich is a leading European city and is a fantastic addition to our flight programme as we continue to explore and add further destinations available for Yorkshire’s travelling public from their local airport.”
