Bristol Airport is to see additional service to Paris Charles de Gaulle with bmi, in response to customer demand.
The airline currently flies twice daily between its Bristol hub and Paris, but will be adding a further flight three times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
“Having consistently invested in our service offering from our Bristol hub, manifesting itself in increased frequencies on key business routes as well as new destinations such as our recently launched Bristol to Gothenburg service, we believe these additional flights between Paris and Bristol will offer our customers an even greater choice, with greatly improved convenience and flexibility, alongside the continued service, efficiency and value that our customers expect from bmi,” said Jochen Schnadt, chief commercial officer of bmi.
Adding, “With the strong affinity between the Paris Metropolitan region and the South West / South Wales, especially in the energy and aerospace industries space, increasing our service offering now to 14x weekly flights in either direction, we are looking to directly address our customers’ needs.”
Nigel Scott, business development director, Bristol Airport said, “We are delighted bmi regional will increase the capacity on flights between Bristol and Paris (Charles de Gaulle) airports. This will provide improved services to a European hub airport offering world-wide connections whether for business or leisure.”
This spring also marks five years of bmi’s successful Frankfurt and Munich routes from Bristol which, since launching in March and May 2013 respectively, have consistently grown to become two of the airline’s hallmark services.
