bmi Regional update

More details have emerged of the sale of bmi Regional to an investment group that involves Stephen and Peter Bond, of Bond Helicopters in non-executive roles.  Leading the new partnership are Ian Woodley, who founded Business Air in 1987, from which bmi Regional evolved; Graeme Ross, Scotland Director, Eastern Airways, 2002-2010; and Robert Sturman, former Chief Executive at British World Airlines at Southend.  bmi Regional is operationally based at Aberdeen and has a sizeable presence at East Midlands Airport.

As things stand bmi Regional will by the end of the summer be the only identifiable part of the old British Midland Airways operation still flying, owning the two letter airline identification code BD and the company website.  Whether it retains various code-shares linked in with its former owner remains to be seen, likewise its relationship with Star Alliance.

Presently the bmi Regional fleet consists of 14 Embraer 145s (49 seats) and four Embraer 135s (37 seats) used mainly on scheduled routes although the airline is under contract with Airbus for certain company shuttle operations. www.flybmi.com
