bmi regional expands

Munich is to become a major hub for bmi regional, now Britain’s fourth largest scheduled airline.

Working in conjunction with Lufthansa, with whom it will codeshare, the airline will from 31 March serve Milan Bergamo twice daily and Rostock six times per week.  From 15 April Norrköping also goes six times weekly.  All will be operated by Embraer ERJ twin jets carrying up to 50 passengers.

The airline already flies from Bristol and Southampton to Munich, as well as Berne, Brno and Rotterdam.

Located in northern Italy, Bergamo is a multi-faceted destination.  The city is just 40km from Milan and 30km from the spectacularly serene and the beautiful Lake Como.  It is also a gateway city to the Italian Alps.

Rostock is one of the German Hanseatic cities, a league of maritime trading centres that grouped together in the 15th century and as such has a rich history and charming architecture.  So there are churches, city walls and pretty gabled houses to explore.  

Nicknamed ‘Little Manchester’ thanks to its history of textile and paper production, Norrköping  once laid claim to producing 70% of all textiles made in Sweden.   www.bmiregional.com
