BMI axe flights

British Airways, a UK-based airline company, is continuing the integration of British Midland International (bmi) airline into its main fleet, with its new winter schedule.

The airline is terminating Bmi flights to several destinations, in favour of its main flight routes. Cut from the new schedule are Bmi’s flights to Dammam, which cease on September 16; flights to Bishkek, Yereven and Khartoum, which will terminate on October 1; and services to Amritsar and Casablanca, which will end on October 28, 2012.

The Bmi flights to Riyadh and Jeddah are also terminating on September 16, 2012, in favour of services offered by British Airways to these destinations.

Bmi’s services to Cairo and Moscow will also be ending, on September 5 and October 12, respectively.

The other Bmi services that will be integrated into British Airways include services to Dublin, Almaty, Tbilisi, Baku, Beirut and Freetown.

The new Bmi winter schedule, which commences from October 28, 2012, includes an increase in the number of seats to Scotland, by around 32 percent, with new routes from London City Airport to Aberdeen and the Isle of Man, and London Heathrow Airport to Leeds Bradford and Belfast airports.

Bmi will also be launching new international routes, including ones from London Heathrow to Seoul, Alicante, Rotterdam and Zagreb, and from London Gatwick airport to Las Vegas and Barcelona.

Passengers holding tickets with BD (bmi) flight numbers may have to undergo some changes in services and policies due to the changes in the flight numbers, including changes to Heathrow check-in times and business class hand baggage allowances.
