Three new routes from airport
THREE new European destinations will be added to Bristol Airport’s schedule next year.
Flights to Corsica, Frankfurt and Hamburg will all be started in the coming weeks. All three routes will be run by bmi regional.
Robert Sinclair, the airport’s chief executive officer, said the introduction of more German flights had come about after the airport conducted a survey of most wanted destinations.
Hamburg will be the first new destination added to the timetable when a five times a week service begins on February 11. In April a further seven flights a week will be provided by bmi regional.
The Frankfurt route will take off at the end of March with six flights per week.
