Bmi to codeshare with Air France

Bmi currently flies twice daily between Bristol and Paris but it will add a third weekly flight on May 14.

Regional carrier bmi will enter into a codeshare partnership with Air France on flights between Bristol and Paris. Starting on May 14, the partnership will enable bmi passengers to transfer to flights to 25 cities at Air France's Charles de Gaulle hub.

Bmi currently flies twice daily between Bristol and Paris but it will add a third weekly flight on May 14.

Benedicte Duval, general manager for Air France KLM in UK & Ireland, said: "This new codeshare agreement is excellent news for our customers in the South West.

"Both business and leisure passengers will now benefit from the enhanced opportunity of connecting to a range of exciting destinations across France via our hub at Paris Charles de Gaulle.

"From the fashionable Cote d'Azur to the picturesque vineyards of Bordeaux, this new partnership improves connectivity and offers customers access to even more destinations from the convenience of their local airport."

Bmi chief commercial officer Jochen Schnadt said: "Our new codeshare enables customers from across the South West to book through-tickets with Air France to 25 cities across France. With up to three daily services to Paris Charles de Gaulle, bmi provides seamless and convenient access to France. This is yet another step for bmi in building a comprehensive network of strategic airline partnerships.

"This new partnership delivers additional connectivity for the South West and South Wales region, enabling even more people to fly straight from their local airport, as well as offering French corporate and leisure customers the advantage of superior access to Bristol, the South West of England and Wales."

Bmi Regional is represented by Discover the World in Greece.
