bmibaby announces summer service to Newquay

2nd February 2009 Print
Low cost airline, bmibaby, has today announced a new summer service to Newquay from Birmingham International Airport. The new service will operate from 22 May to 20 September 2009, on Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

bmibaby is the only low cost airline to fly this route from the airport and expects to carry over 20,000 passengers on the new service over the summer months. Prices start from just £13.99 one way including taxes and charges.

Crawford Rix, managing director, bmibaby, said:

“bmibaby is proud to introduce a new route from Birmingham International Airport to Newquay. This destination is currently not served by any other airline from Birmingham, so by launching this new service we are offering customers a unique summer destination at fantastically low fares.

“Newquay offers something for everyone, from its stunning coastline to numerous golden beaches which are great for walking and surfing. There is also plenty to do for those who prefer dry land, from walks along the dramatic coastline, to top class food at Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen restaurant; visitors to Newquay will be spoilt for choice. Flights will commence from Birmingham on 22 May 2009 and will operate on Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

“In the current economic climate the airline industry is seeing a weakening in demand from consumers for impulsive city breaks and an increase for typical beach destinations. In order to meet the demand for more sunshine routes from the Midlands, we will be replacing our city route from Birmingham to Cork with the new route to Newquay. This will enable us to meet the high consumer demand for services to beach destinations.”

Paul Kehoe, chief executive officer, Birmingham International Airport, said:

“It is excellent news for the Airport that Newquay will again be available as a route from Birmingham through bmibaby during the summer months. This route has operated previously and has always been successful for the Airport and the airlines that have operated it. It is important that during these trying times that our airlines are able to be flexible in their schedules in order to cater for the needs of our passengers.”

Customers holding bookings from Birmingham to Cork for travel after 29th March 2009 will be contacted by bmibaby as soon as possible and offered an alternative flight or a full refund.

bmibaby is on sale with flights for summer 2009 from Birmingham International Airport to 13 other destinations: Alicante, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Belfast International, Edinburgh, Faro, Glasgow International, Ireland West Knock, Malaga, Murcia, Nice, Palma and Prague.
