bmi regional sings “Allez les Bleus!”: special flights for rugby fans


bmi regional increases flight frequency to meet demand from French Rugby fans

Demand for travel to the UK by French rugby fans keen to support their team in Saturday’s Rugby World Cup Quarter-final match test at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium has prompted independent British airline, bmi regional, to add capacity on its Paris to Bristol route.

Commenting, Chief Commercial Officer Jochen Schnadt said: “France’s progress into the Quarter Finals of the Rugby World Cup has seen demand for our scheduled services on the Paris to Bristol route surge. Responding to our customers’ needs we are offering additional flights at convenient times on Saturday and Sunday to accommodate the increase in French rugby fans wishing to travel to Bristol and onto Cardiff. This in turn allows us also to offer great value to our customers in the West Country and Wales to fly to Paris for a mini-break on short notice.

“This increase in in-bound visitors is a huge boost to the local economy and we’re delighted that travellers to Wales are able to reach the rugby so easily using Bristol Airport, with a short onward journey to the Welsh capital.”

All passengers travelling with bmi regional always benefit from a full service product onboard modern and comfortable jet aircraft.

The additional flights include:

BM1882 CDG BRS 1045 1105

Sunday 18 October:
