bmibaby remains committed to East Midlands Airport
10 September 2009
Low cost airline bmibaby, which is part of the bmi group, has this month confirmed it remains fully committed to East Midlands Airport and the wider midlands region.
The bmi group has operated from East Midlands since the airport opened in 1965 – and the bmi group has been an embedded part of the local community for the past 44 years, operating the first scheduled services from the region.
bmibaby will add extra capacity within the next 48 hours across its network to meet the market demand that will be increased by the departure of easyJet from East Midlands Airport.
Crawford Rix, managing director, bmibaby, said:
“We want to reassure the people of the region we will remain committed to East Midlands Airport. bmibaby has gone from strength to strength at the airport and we will continue to provide low fares to a great range of European destinations.
“As a result of easyjet’s decision to leave the airport, we will be increasing capacity over our current network over the next 48 hours, so that the east midlands market continues to have the capacity it needs.
“East Midlands Airport is home to bmibaby and we are currently exploring other opportunities to fill the gap left by easyJet at the airport.
“bmibaby is real champion of the consumer and this week uniquely has no credit card or debit card fees. We will continue to offer the highest quality low fares service to the market.”
