BMI stops Nordic routes, pulls out of airports

Birmingham-Billund and Edinburgh-Copenhagen to stop

In a radical review of its operations, BMI Regional is stopping five of its routes and pulling out of the UK airports at Edinburgh, Birmingham and Manchester.

The “comprehensive review” of operations has concluded in the airline scrapping the routes Birmingham to Billund; Edinburgh to Copenhagen and Brussels; and Manchester to Edinburgh and Antwerp.

The airline, which became fully independent from former parent company British Airways a year ago, will keep Aberdeen and Bristol as its main hubs.

“We would like to reassure all customers booked to fly with us on the affected routes that services will operate up to the termination dates – November 29 for Manchester, December 31 for Billund and January 5 for Edinburgh to Copenhagen and Brussels”, a spokesman said.

“We will be in contact with passengers booked beyond these dates to offer alternative arrangements or refund.”

BMI Regional is going ahead with new routes between Newcastle and Brussels and between Aberdeen and Oslo.
