BMI relaunches as independent regional airline

BMI Regional is to launch as an independent airline, after its parent company British Midland International (BMI) was taken over in May.

The new airline will have its head office at East Midlands Airport, in Castle Donington, with its operations base in Aberdeen.

British Midland was bought by the International Airlines Group, with the deal including BMI Baby and BMI Regional.

BMI Regional was sold to Sector Aviation Holdings in May, and Bmibaby closed down in September.

The airline will run European flights, including routes from East Midlands Airport to Brussels and Frankfurt.

Chairman Ian Woodley said: "These are exciting times for the new BMI regional and, as a new business, we've been extremely busy behind the scenes ensuring a seamless transition from being part of the BMI group.

"A substantial amount of our systems and infrastructure have had to be changed, and we've made strong progress."
