Bmibaby pulls out of Manchester and Cardiff

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

Chris Gray

No-frills airline bmibaby is to pull out of Manchester and Cardiff airports, but expand at Belfast, East Midlands and Birmingham.

The carrier will drop the 13 routes it operates at Manchester and the 10 it operates at Cardiff from the end of October.

It said it was making the decision because the economic climate meant it had to focus on airports where it had a strong presence and there were strong growth opportunities.

“Our strength is in the Midlands, so it makes sense to consolidate what we have there. We have a great presence and the opportunity is there to expand,” said a spokeswoman.

The carrier had two aircraft at Manchester and two at Cardiff. Two of those will now be based at Belfast City, from where bmibaby will operate seven new routes.

It will operate a summer 2012 programme to Malaga, Alicante, Palma, Faro and Ibiza, as well as a year-round service to Amsterdam, and new flights to Geneva for winter 2011.

One of the aircraft will move to East Midlands, from where the carrier will operate two new routes to Toulouse and Chambery from winter 2011.

The fourth aircraft will be based at Birmingham, and details of new routes from there will be announced shortly.

Meanwhile, British Midland International will maintain its presence at Manchester. It has announced a new service to Frankfurt operated on behalf of Lufthansa, and has launched a new service from Manchester to Basel in Switzerland.

BMI Baby to be grounded by BA owner IAG BMI Baby is losing about £25m a year Continue reading the main story

BMI Baby, the budget airline, will be grounded from September, with some routes being stopped from next month, owner IAG has announced.

The move by the owner of British Airways (BA), which bought BMI from Lufthansa last month, puts almost 500 jobs at risk.

IAG is still open to offers for BMI Baby, but expressed doubts last month that a buyer would be found.

The airline, based at East Midlands Airport, is losing about £25m a year.

While BMI's mainstream operations are being integrated into BA, talks are described as "positive" on a sale of its Aberdeen-based Regional division, which has 300 staff, says BBC's Scotland business and economy editor Douglas Fraser.

IAG had already made it clear that BMI Baby and BMI Regional would not be part of its long-term plans.

'Full refunds'

"BMI Baby has delivered high levels of operational performance and customer service, but has continued to struggle financially, losing more than £100m in the last four years," said BMI's interim managing director Peter Simpson in a letter to all staff.

"To help stem losses as quickly as possible, and as a preliminary measure, we will be making reductions to BMI Baby's flying programme from June. We sincerely apologise to all customers affected and will be providing full refunds and doing all we can with other airlines to mitigate the impact of these changes."

The changes mean that all BMI Baby flights to and from Belfast will cease from 11 June 2012.

Services from East Midlands to Amsterdam, Paris, Geneva, Nice, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newquay, and from Birmingham to Knock and Amsterdam, will cease on the same date.

"Customers can continue to book summer holiday flights from East Midlands and Birmingham," the airline said.

"It is proposed that all BMI Baby flights departing from Monday September 10, 2012 onwards will no longer operate
