2nd April 2007 Print
bmi regional, officially the UK’s most punctual airline, launched its new route from Aberdeen to Kristiansand last Friday. The new route provides Scottish travellers with links to Norway’s fifth largest city, which is located in the country’s southern region and is an important centre for the oil and shipping industries. Flights operate every day with the exception of Saturday.

Stewart Adams, managing director of bmi regional, said: “We are delighted to be starting services from our base at Aberdeen to Kristiansand. Not only do we expect this to be a popular route with business and industry, but also with the inbound and outbound leisure traveller.

“We are enjoying a very exciting start to the year with the acquisition of new aircraft enabling us to launch six new route and we look forward to continued growth and development in the coming months.”

Today’s launch is just one of six new routes which have been announced by the Aberdeen-based airline so far this year. Aberdeen-Brussels; Edinburgh-Zurich; Leeds Bradford-Copenhagen; Leeds Bradford-Lille; and Manchester-Lyon are also newcomers to the summer schedule for bmi regional.
