bmibaby has launched two new services from Manchester Airport to Amsterdam and Toulouse.
The airline expects to carry approximately 106,000 passengers between Manchester and Amsterdam, and 26,000 between Manchester and Toulouse over the peak summer period.
The airline will operate a double daily service to Amsterdam during the week and on Sunday, plus one flight on Saturdays. bmibaby will operate three flights a week to Toulouse on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. The airline is currently the only low cost carrier offering flights from Manchester to Toulouse. The inaugural flight to Amsterdam and to Toulouse departed from Manchester yesterday, Sunday 29 March 2009.
Crawford Rix, managing director, bmibaby said: “We are pleased to launch the new routes from Manchester Airport to Toulouse and Amsterdam this week, and we are already seeing strong bookings to these destinations. Amsterdam is a key business and leisure route and our frequent low cost flights to the city will allow even more people to access this great city.
“In addition we are the only low cost carrier to fly from Manchester to Toulouse, so we are opening up a new destination to Manchester and the regions. Toulouse is a cosmopolitan city, the fourth largest and fastest growing city in France and offers the perfect blend of heritage, lifestyle, events and festivals, so we believe it will be a very popular route from Manchester.”
