bmi Regional and Air France have announced a brand new codeshare partnership on bmi’s Bristol to Paris service. The partnership, which commences from 14th May 2018, will provide business and leisure customers from Bristol Airport with access to 25 french cities via Air France’s hub at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport.
The news comes less than a month after bmi announced that it would be increasing the frequency of its Paris CDG service from Bristol Airport. The airline currently flies twice daily between Bristol and Paris but, in response to customer demand the airline will be adding a further flight three times a week – on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from the 14 May 2018.
As well as opening up new destinations to the South West, the new codeshare partnership strengthens both airlines’ network presence at Bristol Airport and is also expected to benefit inbound tourism to the local area and economy.
