East Midlands Airport affected by closure of bmibaby routes

Although many routes flown by bmibaby that have now closed have been taken over by other airlines, eight routes are not being served. They are: Newquay, Toulouse, Alghero in Sardinia, Malta, Gibralta, Prague, Verona and Catania, in Sicily.
Ken O’Toole, chief commercial officer for the Manchester Airport Group, which owns East Midlands Airport, said: “Whilst the closure of Bmibaby will have a short-term effect on passenger numbers at the airport, this will be more than offset by summer 2013, with expansion plans from Flybe, Ryanair, Jet2.com and the introduction of brand new operator Monarch.
“We’re pleased to say that passengers can still fly to the majority of destinations that were previously operated by Bmibaby, while there is now a larger number of airlines now operating from East Midlands Airport.”
He explained that a new partnership between Air France and Flybe means that passengers can now fly to more countries across the world from East Midlands by changing at Paris.
