Bmibaby announces East Midlands expansion

9 Sep 2009 by Mark Caswell

Low-cost carrier Bmibaby is to expand its services at East Midlands, just days after Easyjet announced it is pulling out of the airport.

The airline is basing three additional aircraft at the airport, and will commence eight new routes to cities including Barcelona, Cork, Malta and Venice between, with start dates ranging between this December and next May (see tables below for full details). Bmibaby is also expanding its Prague and Geneva routes to all year round services.

The news brings the total number of routes served by the carrier from East Midlands to 24, and comes after low-cost rival Easyjet announced it is ceasing its operations at the airport next year (see online news September 3). Ryanair has also recently announced new services from East Midlands, with three Polish destinations and a service to Marrakech (see online news August 28).
