Bmibaby to double Manchester operations

Wed, 21 May, 2008

Budget airline bmibaby will double the size of its operations at Manchester Airport, it has announced.

In a move that could create over a hundred jobs in the city, bmibaby will increase its services to Europe, with possible new destinations including Warsaw and Krakow.

According to a recent report in Crain's Manchester Business magazine, the carrier is considering adding five new planes to Manchester.

Crawford Rix, managing director of bmibaby, said that Manchester has plenty of capacity for expansion.

He reaffirmed the carrier's commitment to the airport and expressed his confidence in the low-cost aviation market.

The airline currently has four Boeing 737s in Manchester that serve 15 different routes to Europe.

Last month, bmibaby was offering special fares from as little as £10 to a number of domestic and international destinations.
