Search ASIA Travel Tips .com 3 October 2005

bmi plans to increase its services from Heathrow to Mumbai, India to a daily service and to introduce a three-times-weekly Heathrow-Jeddah service, following the successful launch of its Heathrow-Riyadh service last month.

bmi launched a three-times-weekly service between Heathrow and Riyadh on 1 September 2005 and has seen strong bookings in both standard and premium classes. It launched four-times-weekly Heathrow-Mumbai services in May of this year.

bmi chief executive Nigel Turner confirmed bmis plans for future expansion of its long-haul network, which now includes destinations in the US and the Caribbean (from Manchester) and Mumbai and Riyadh (from London Heathrow).

He said, The long-haul arena is a key strategic imperative for bmi. We hope to expand our services to Saudi Arabia and to India in 2006. In addition, we continue to press for the introduction of open skies between the UK and the US, allowing us to fly from Heathrow to the States.

All flights offer a three-class service and are operated on an Airbus A330 aircraft. Business class passengers will be able to experience quality food prepared by bmis in-flight chef.
