Bmi cutting unprofitable domestic and other services

Bmi will be shutting down its links connecting airports in the north of England with London, after providing service on the routes for four decades.

On 28 March, the carrier will discontinue all flights on routes from Leeds/Bradford and Durham Tees Valley airports to London Heathrow.

Cutting these two domestic routes is part of the changes to bmi’s summer schedule.

The frequency on the Heathrow to Amsterdam route is being reduced to four daily flights and the Heathrow to Dublin link is being cut back to six flights per day.

“The decision to withdraw services between London and the North of England was a tough one, as we have operated these routes since 1969,” a statement issued by the airline said.

“However a decline in demand, higher-than-inflation cost increases at Heathrow and higher government Air Passenger Duty (APD) charges have made operating these routes unsustainable.”

Bmi will reduce its services to Addis Ababa to times weekly, while increasing the number of flights to Beirut and Amman to ten times weekly, beginning on 22 May.
