bmi regional has announced the addition of nine UK routes to its network, thanks to a new code-share agreement with sister airline Loganair. Both airlines are owned by Airline Investments Group.
As well as additional routes from bmi regional’s existing gateway at Aberdeen, customers will now be able to fly from Edinburgh and Manchester on the following Loganair operated flights:
Aberdeen – Kirkwall [up to four daily flights] Aberdeen – Sumburgh [up to four daily flights]
Edinburgh – Kirkwall [up to three daily flights] Edinburgh – Stornaway [up to two daily flights] Edinburgh – Sumburgh [up to three daily flights] Edinburgh – Wick [up to two daily flights]
Manchester – Glasgow [up to six daily flights] Manchester – Inverness [up to three daily flights] Manchester – Norwich [up to three daily flights]
Loganair will also be placing a codeshare on each of bmi regional’s four routes from Aberdeen:
Aberdeen – Bristol [daily, except Saturday] Aberdeen – Esbjerg [daily, except Thursday and Saturday] Aberdeen – Norwich [double daily weekdays, daily on Sunday] Aberdeen – Oslo [daily, except Monday and Saturday]
Jochen Schnadt, chief commercial officer for bmi regional, commented, “This new partnership with our sister airline, Loganair offers bmi regional customers a much wider network of destinations across Scotland and further afield, fitting perfectly with our ongoing business strategy to develop our partnership networks. With the synergy already afforded to us by being sister brands, both offering seamless connectivity on regional routes, it makes absolute sense to start offering code-share options to our customers..”
Kay Ryan, Loganair’s commercial director said: “We’re pleased to reach yet another major code-share agreement, further enhancing the choice of destinations available through the airline’s network. These will significantly increase convenience for passengers of both Loganair and our sister airline, bmi regional – enabling travel between multiple destinations on a single ticket.
“It also adds to our offering from the North East of Scotland, extending routes into Denmark for the first time while opening-up connections to Norway’s capital city and England’s South West.”
