bmi expands its Bristol – Paris service

Fri 09 Mar 2018
Additional flights on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, starting 14 May 2018

As of 14 May, the Bristol – Paris Charles de Gaulle route will operate as follows:

Monday, Wednesday, Thursday – 3 x daily
Tuesday and Friday – 2 x daily
Sunday – 1 x daily

The additional flights will offer improved convenience and flexibility for all customers, and particularly those travelling on business between Paris and the South West of England and South Wales.
This spring also marks five years of flybmi’s successful Frankfurt and Munich routes from Bristol, which, since launching in March and May 2013 respectively, have grown consistently and become two of flybmi’s hallmark services. Enabling business and leisure travellers from the South West to connect three times daily to Frankfurt and twice daily to Munich, the flights also have the advantage of allowing customers from the South West to continue their journey to destinations across Europe and further afield, via both flybmi’s Munich and Frankfurt hubs and also its codeshare agreement with Lufthansa and Air Dolomiti.

Jochen Schnadt, Chief Commercial Officer of flybmi, commented, “Providing a convenient, quality air link between the South West / South Wales and Europe’s most prominent business and leisure destinations has always been a priority for flybmi, and we are delighted to continue to build the network at our Bristol base. Having consistently invested in our service offering from our Bristol hub, manifesting itself in increased frequencies on key business routes as well as new destinations such as our recently launched Bristol to Gothenburg service, we believe these additional flights between Paris and Bristol will offer our customers an even greater choice, with greatly improved convenience and flexibility, alongside the continued service, efficiency and value that our customers expect from flybmi. With the strong affinity between the Paris Metropolitan region and the South West / South Wales, especially in the energy and aerospace industries space, increasing our service offering now to 14x weekly flights in either direction, we are looking to directly address our customers’ needs.”

Nigel Scott, Business Development Director, Bristol Airport said, “ We are delighted flybmi will increase the capacity on flights between Bristol and Paris (Charles de Gaulle) airports. This will provide improved services to a European hub airport offering world-wide connections whether for business or leisure.”
