Just released:

"bmi british midland to launch new flights to Brussels from regional airports

bmi british midland is launching new services on 12 November 2001 to Brussels from Manchester and Leeds Bradford airports ensuring that competition, consumer choice and continuity of service are protected from regional airports.

bmi will launch three services per day from both Manchester and Leeds Bradford airports to Brussels. Flight times have been scheduled to ensure that travellers are able to enjoy a full day’s business or leisure in the city. The services from Manchester will be operated on a 80 seat BAE 146 jet aircraft and from Leeds Bradford on a 49 seat Embraer 145 jet aircraft, both offering customers a two class style of service.

The Manchester service will also be of further benefit to travellers, who will be able to connect at Manchester onto bmi transatlantic services to Chicago O’Hare and Washington DC.

For the month of November, passengers holding Sabena tickets for a confirmed reservation on a Sabena flight between Brussels and Leeds Bradford, Manchester or Edinburgh can receive a 25 per cent discount.

The launch of the new services brings the number of bmi UK departing destinations for Brussels to five, with 34 flights per day. bmi will now serve Brussels from London Heathrow, Edinburgh, East Midlands, Manchester and Leeds Bradford airports.

bmi is seeking a long term commitment from the airport authority at Brussels for suitable slots for the two new routes, so as to prevent any future passenger disruption.

The airline is also proposing to launch from 1 December 2001 a new Birmingham to Brussels route. bmi will again be seeking a long term commitment from Brussels airport on suitable slot times."
