With three carriers scheduled to be on the route from the 30th October 2006, it was expected that one would have to pull out and it is BMI to do so.
cancellation of Southampton - Amsterdam services
Unfortunately, due to commercial reasons, bmi regional’s planned service between Southampton and Amsterdam, due to launch from winter 2006, has been cancelled. Customers already booked to travel will be contacted by reservations and will be reaccommodated on Scot Airways or be given a full refund. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused.
The three times daily service provided by flybe. began yesterday, with a triumphant report on its website stating that the first flight went out fully booked.

They should think about linking up SOU with a Star Alliance hub instead of leaving all the network traffic to AF/KL, particularly as long-haul services from LGW have been cut bach by BA over the years and the European network becomes more and more LCC-centric at LGW. While they will not be able to get slots at FRA, some lfights to MUC would do nicely and open up the SOU to countless destinations in Italy and Eastern Europe and to quite a few long-haul destinations.
