bmi's lowcost unit bmibaby has confirmed that it is looking for the 3rd base for it's expansion in 2003.

bmibaby earlier announced it's 2nd crib (base) is Cardiff. Bookings for both East Midlands and Cardiff is experiencing unparalled growth.

i would love it to be edinburgh, but i feel that BAA will be asking far too much. Plus, due to its geographic location, any flights from edi will be more costly and less profitable than a flight from down south..


That'll teach you

I wouldn't be surprised if they went for somewhere like Bournemouth or Southampton.

What about Norwich?

Southampton would be a good airport, it has a train station alongside. But would they partly compete with LGW?

Leeds would be good. Its about time the North of England got low cost flights (aside from Liverpool's Easyjet connections).

Whilst Manchester is a great airport, there aren't too many cheap flights about in this region.



Next flights: MAN-IST-AUH-MAN

Mancester and STN were both talking to bmi baby before it picked cardiff, my outside bet is southampton.

I'd be surprised if it was LBA given that the airport are pushing hard to get expansion from bmi regional. The imminent switch of EMA from a mixed base to a dedicated Baby operation tells us that wherever base no 3 is, it is not likely to be somewhere with a significant Embraer base.

One reason it may not be a Scottish base though is, that I believe BMI are looking at GLA or EDI as becoming their 3rd biggest UK hub.

Should be Glasgow we deservie it! It makes so much sense it would be stupid not to in my view! BAA would also achevie most of there aims for the airport in 1 go for the euro destinations they are wanting plus and they get there low-cost airline there always on about gettin and more passingers. Its a complete winner 4 every 1

PIK could be a good option even if there FR has a large number of flights.

In any case BMI baby flies to different destinations than FR.

I think someone's been reading the Herald  Big grin

I think the favourite at the moment is probably Prestwick after reading an article.  Big grin

So it is partly owned by bmi's parents SAS and LH, do they have a say in bmibaby's routes and bases? Will SAS and LH want to approve the location of the 3rd base?

Well it may be in the Herald, but it is not in the Yorkshire Evening Post. The YEP being as apathetic of LBA as any paper could be to its home city airport;probably bodes well for Leeds Bradford Airport....after all no news is good news!

As a point of fact, if the LBA was to become London's 4th airport; it probably would share the page with an article on fly fishing by JR Hartley....the fly fishing article would be the one with the large picture!!

Seriously, I think LBA has been working hard and its about time they got a piece of the action.
