The number of international passengers jetting out of Aberdeen is set to increase following the launch of a new direct bmi regional route to Amsterdam.

This week saw the UK’s most punctual regional carrier commence a new service that departs for Amsterdam three times daily Monday to Friday, once on Saturday and twice on Sundays.

Operated by bmi regional’s all jet fleet of Embraer aircraft, the flight schedule is conveniently timed to meet the needs of Aberdeen’s growing numbers of business passengers and is designed to allow for a full working day in Holland’s capital.

Managing director of bmi regional, Crawford Rix commented: “Amsterdam is a popular business and leisure destination as the national, financial and cultural capital of the Netherlands, but it’s also an important international gateway for the North East of Scotland.

“We remain firmly committed to expanding our flight offering from Aberdeen, our home airport, and I’m confident that that our new service will not only be welcomed by the discerning business traveller, but by all travellers from and visitors to Scotland’s North East who have a strong desire for quality and choice.”

Managing Director of Aberdeen airport, Andy Flower said:
“Aberdeen Airport is achieving record growth in passenger numbers as we continue to build an ever stronger network of national and international routes.

“We are working hard to widen the international destinations available directly from Aberdeen and I’m delighted that bmi regional has launched this new service. As Aberdeen Airport continues to grow, we are confident that carriers such as bmi regional will be keen to extend their route offering in the future.”
A full service airline operating a range of domestic and international routes from key regional airports, bmi regional is officially the best airline for punctuality in the UK and renowned for excellent in-flight service and frequent flyer benefits.

All flights offer the speed and comfort of an all-jet aircraft service and separate business and economy class seating on board with complimentary refreshments. Business lounge facilities and range of check-in options, including online check-in, also ensures speed and efficiency at the airport.
