New bmibaby routes for Birmingham Airport
Tuesday, April 3, 2012
Fans of our Birmingham Airport valet parking services will be interested to learn that bmibaby has announced a clutch of new routes from Birmingham for spring 2012.
Passengers can now combine a luxury Birmingham Meet & Greet parking package with a cheap flight to Rome thanks to bmibaby's new route to the Italian capital.
Other new routes announced from Birmingham Airport this spring included services to Barcelona and Lisbon.
While the new flights to Rome and Barcelona will depart four times a week, the Lisbon flights will depart twice-weekly, giving both business and leisure travellers plenty of coverage to the three key European cities.
To celebrate the launch of the Rome flights, bmibaby customers at Birmingham Airport were treated to free pizza served by staff dressed in lavish Roman togas. The firm's mascot 'Tiny' was also on hand to wave passengers off as they departed on the first flights bound for Western Italy.
In a recent press release, Birmingham Airport's Head of Route Development William Pearson said of the news: "The launch of this new route is fantastic news for the people of Birmingham and the wider Midlands region. You can now fly from Birmingham to Rome up to four times a week on bmibaby."
"This is a really exciting time for the airport, as our friends at bmibaby have also recently launched new services to Barcelona and Lisbon, making Birmingham the ideal place to fly from for those wishing to enjoy a city break over the summer."
Members of our Birmingham Airport parking team meanwhile were equally positive about the news. Birmingham Manager Gaz Sadiq confirmed that Stress Free Parking passengers were excited by the increased choice in flight destination from Birmingham.
"Yes, we've had lots of people talking about the new bmibaby destinations and a handful of our recent bookings have been bound for Rome."
"A sizeable proportion of the customers who use our Birmingham valet parking services are business customers, and I know the increased links to major European cities will be good news for them."
