27 Nov 2008 by Mark Caswell

Bmi’s low-cost
subsidiary is cutting five routes from Birmingham to Italy, Portugal, Spain and
France for the summer 2009 schedule.

The carrier will
drop flights to Rome
Fiumicino, Milan Bergamo, Lisbon, Madrid and Bordeaux from Birmingham
International airport for the period March 29 to October 24 next year.

A Bmibaby
spokesperson said the routes were being suspended “in response to a weakening
of consumer demand, which is being impacted upon by the current economic
climate and its unpredictability”.

The airline said
its key Mediterranean routes from Birmingham are
continuing to perform “extremely well”, and that it was committed to flying from
with 10,000 flights to or from the airport planned for 2009.
