Cheap flights to Berlin from London Heathrow are being launched by bmi later this month, with tickets having gone on sale yesterday (March 16th).
Four daily flights to the German capital will be operated using an Airbus A319 aircraft from March 28th in what is the second new summer route announced by the airline.
In January, bmi confirmed its intention to introduce flights to Vienna, the Austrian capital, from London.
Dominic Paul, bmi’s managing director, said the new route will offer access to one of "Europe’s most exciting cities".
"Berlin is a major centre of culture, politics, media and science in Europe and customers travelling with bmi will have the opportunity to discover the cultural attractions Berlin has to offer," he commented.
On the same day of the route’s introduction, bmi is relaunching services on its European route network by introducing a two-class cabin service, allowing the carrier to serve both business and leisure passengers.
Earlier this month, bmi announced a new codeshare agreement with SWISS on its flights to Switzerland from the UK.
This will apply on routes to Zurich, Geneva and Basel.
