”This is the second new service for bmi’s summer 2010 schedule, following the announcement about our new London-Vienna service in January.”
The new route announcement comes as bmi relaunches its product on continental European flights from 28 March 2010 with a two-class cabin serving the needs of business and leisure customers.

More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
