bmi regional has announced the launch of a new code-share partnership with Italian airline Air Dolomiti, which sees five new routes added to its network.
Passengers will be able to book connecting flights operated by Air Dolomiti between bmi regional’s network to/from Munich via the Munich Gateway and the following five Italian destinations.
These include Venice, Verona, Bari, Bologna, and Florence.
Air Dolomiti already has a strong existing relationship with bmi regional, working as its Italian general sales agent with a view of growing the airline’s presence in the Italian market.
The new code-share routes are the next step in bmi regional’s ongoing network development from its Munich hub.
Over the past six months, it has extended its frequency on several existing routes from Munich and launched a new route to Lublin in Poland.
In November 2017, bmi regional will also be launching a new route between Munich and Saarbrücken in the west of Germany.
The short, one hour, hop will be operated twice daily on weekdays, and once on Saturday and Sunday.
Jochen Schnadt, chief commercial officer, bmi regional, said: “The extension of our relationship with Air Dolomiti to include code-share cooperation is a logical next step for bmi regional.
“The company shares our commitment to providing a quality, convenient product with excellent customer service, and our customers will now have access to a range of excellent routes into Italy from our all-important Munich hub.
“These new routes allow our customers from our existing markets linked to Munich to also enjoy convenient connections to some of Italy’s most exciting locations.”
