Just an up date but bmi regional are seeking cabin crew for their southampton base and also Manchester. I wouldn't have thought that Southampton would be to exciting in terms of routes seen as the airline only flys 1 route.

Maybe they are planning a regional hub for Southampton or they are planning a massive expansion lol! Let the interpretations of this begin!

Sorry for asking, but I don't have a very good knowledge of BD's regional network. What is this route that it flies to Southampton? Is it from Manchester? Is it on a E145?

For years the SOU-AMS route has only had Scot Airways operating the route.Soon there will be 3!I'd be surprised if Bmi stayed on the route for long,if they actually start it at all( a la LTN-BRU).

'what is bmi's strategy'

well that is a good quest
not sure they know themselves!! are the going to be an LCC,(bmi baby) or a full service airline?! (BMI International) or the other one regional which is operated by EMB 135 and 45's,

there main goal is to fly to JFK from LHR plus 12 other US destinations, tho Bermuda 2 ' stops that, so they are just trying to open up any market possible (Moscow this week)

The plan is for 2-3 new European routes from SOU by S07.

The airline will launch 4x daily* SOU-AMS-SOU flights from 29/10/06. The E145 will be used on BD511/513/515/517.

*schedules during the weekend are reduced.

Quoting Orlando666 (Reply 6):

Though I must admit bmi's plans have been a tad incoherent in the past, they are now trying to expand services out of their current 'niche' markets and destinations.

There strategy seems quite straightforward. They have 2 subsidiaries serving different markets. bmi mainline (there's no international in the name) serves the core market out of LHR to domestic, European and intercontinental destinations (as well as long haul from MAN). bmi Regional serves the smaller routes/flights and niche markets. bmi Baby is a low cost subsidiary with it's biggest bases in BHX and EMA. bmi is not the only international airline to have regional and low cost subsidiaries operating alongside their mainline services. They have a different business model for each market. Any overlapping becomes beneficial to the consumer (e.g. 'tiny fares' offered by bmibaby being also offered on a limited number of seats on bmi mainline flights).

Quoting Zkojh (Reply 7):

Indeed the airline has been pushing for changes to the BII agreement to allow it access to the LHR-US market. 12 destinations is an ambitious, long term plan so don't expect to see all 12 new destinations coming online within the next 5 years.

Quoting Zkojh (Reply 7):
so they are just trying to open up any market possible (Moscow this week)

Not 'any' market, but those that could sustain high yields. There is talk of a shift from short to medium haul flights for their next phase of expansion to include destinations in the Mediterranean and the Middle East (ATH, IST, LCA, CAI, DMM, AUH/DXB).

What a bad timing to launch these flights just as Flybe are launchng city destinations from SOU. A year or so ago and Flybe were concenraing on leisure destinations and bmi might have got themselves established at SOU. But with Flybe expanding into the European city market they will find it hard. I hope if they do expand they will concentrate on Star Alliance hubs (MUC, ZRH, CPH, FRA) as at least they will be able to offer connections Flybe can't

But in my opinion bmi just scrap SOU-AMS and start EDI-MUC!!!

Humberside, forward bookings on the AMS route are 'encouraging' considering it's still months before flights start. I'd say the SOU-AMS route (despite the competition) is far larger and higher yielding than EDI-MUC.

That is surprising. I guess Flybe are doing well so could Scot Airways be forced of SOU-AMS. Tthey surely can't be room for three airlines on the route

Corporate contracts with companies can be the make or break on this route.

With the Americas Cup in Valencia next year and the large number of marine businesses and professional sailors based on the south coast, then a route to VLC would be a good idea though they'll need be quick. NCE might be worthwhile for similar reasons.

This would be good as well but given that this is BD it might be too much joined-up-thinking.

All-in-all I just hope that BD can be successful and last at SOU.

No but Im sure you remember it being launched last year and then not happenning. It would have the benefit of connections at MUC and would link one of Germany's largest cities to Scotland's capital. There would be business and leisure traffic between EDI and MUC. And no direct competition. It should also qualify for Scottish Executive route development funding. At the time is was launched it was widely regarded as a very sensible decision by bmi

FRA, MUC and CPH would be great routes from SOU. When BE first turned up they promised BCN and NCE (yet nothing hapened) so perhaps these routes would be of interest to BD with a 40-50 setaer aircraft?

Not surprising that Cherbourg is a struggler, it only lasted two weeks last year and can't believe it came back this summer. With BE now going into the city market, such as HAJ and DUS perhaps NCE and BCN really will turn up, those two airports seem to be a LCC essential?
