bmi is offering regional UK travellers more city flights to destinations across Europe, thanks to a partnership with Brussels Airport and codeshares with Brussels Airlines.
The airline has adjusted its timetable so that passengers flying to the Belgian capital will be able to take advantage of connecting flights across the rest of Europe.
It is marketing Brussels Airport as a "convenient alternative" to Europe’s busiest hubs, including London Heathrow Airport.
Flying via Brussels, bmi customers will now be able to travel from Edinburgh, Leeds Bradford and East Midlands airports to more than 20 destinations across Europe.
These include Bilbao, Madrid, Lyon and Hamburg.
Stewart Adams, managing director of bmi Regional, said that the new partnerships will allow UK customers to travel across Europe without facing long waits for connections.
In September, bmi announced the launch of daily flights to Tripoli, the capital of Libya, from Heathrow.
The service will begin on December 1st, with daily flights to and from Tripoli.
