This week, Bmibaby celebrated a very special milestone. Two days ago, the airline marked six years at Cardiff airport with several celebratory events aimed at including the passengers who have made its time in the Welsh capital such a success.
Bmibaby has operated 18,000 flights from the airport since arriving in 2002 and has managed to keep approximately three and a half million passengers happy during that time. Part of the appeal of the airline is the wide range of routes offered throughout the year. Popular destinations include Spanish and Portuguese cities such as Malaga and Faro.
However, the airline also transports passengers to destinations closer to home, including Edinburgh and Belfast. As a result of its success, Bmibaby has announced a new route – Geneva will be added to the list of destinations as of the twentieth of December. This is bound to be a popular route and a nice little earner for the airline since it is one of the top ski destinations in Europe. Skiers will be able to choose from five flights a week between Cardiff and Geneva.
Earlier this year, Bmibaby was forced to quash rumours that its services from Cardiff were going to be reduced. The company’s managing director, Crawford Rix, explained that the airline remained “committed to its operation from Cardiff and will continue to offer low fares to exciting destinations”.
Bmibaby is one of the most popular budget airlines in the UK and provides cheap flights to destinations across Europe.
