bmi regional will commence flights from Rotterdam, The Netherlands, Liege, Belgium and Bern, Switzerland to the Bavarian capital, Munich on March 29, 2015. bmi regional will operate the flights in partnership with Lufthansa as code-share flights with joint BM and LH flight numbers. The airline has tailored the schedule from each city to ensure seamless travel connections for business and leisure travellers via Lufthansa’s Munich network of over 200 global destinations.
The move strengthens bmi regional’s network presence at Munich Airport with the German carrier. bmi regional already flies twice a day connecting Bristol with the Bavarian capital in partnership with Lufthansa.
Cathal O’Connell, CEO of bmi regional, said: “These new routes represent a significant step forward for bmi regional and further strengthens our relationship with Lufthansa. Our experience with Munich from Bristol has shown that the airport is both a great destination and a major hub with excellent connection opportunities. We have researched the market extensively, and chose Rotterdam, Liege and Bern as the ideal cities to extend our presence in Europe. Our partnership with Lufthansa has given us the capability to offer seamless connections from these European cities via Munich to more than 200 destinations all over the world.”
