bmi regional to Launch Direct Flights between Aberdeen and Brussels

Travel News Asia Thursday, 15 February 2007

From 16 April, Aberdeen-based bmi regional, will launch a direct daily service between Aberdeen and the Belgian capital, Brussels. The new service will provide a convenient afternoon departure and a much needed non-stop flight connection between the two cities.

Kevin Brown, Aberdeen Airport managing director said, This is an important new link for Aberdeen and the north east, and particularly for the local business community. We have long felt there was a need for a link between Aberdeen and Brussels, two of Europes most important financial and commercial centres, and we welcome this commitment from bmi regional.

The new route takes advantage of support from the Scottish Executive Route Development Fund. Set up in 2002, the fund encourages direct links to Scottish airports thereby reducing journey times and offering alternatives to flying through hubs like London, improving Scotlands global connectivity, providing new jobs and stimulating tourism and business markets.

Transport Minister, Tavish Scott said, This new service between Aberdeen and Brussels is great news for the North East, and for Scotland. It will open up new opportunities for Scottish businesses, and bring benefits for Scottish tourism.

Using modern Embraer jet aircraft on the new route, passengers can look forward to attractive business and economy fares and the renowned bmi regional service, which continues to offer complimentary in-flight refreshments to all passengers.
