bmi regional has amended flight times on its popular Southampton to Munich route to allow business and leisure travellers easier access to the network of 200 global destinations available to them via the airline’s Lufthansa code-share agreement.
The route, which launched in April 2016, offers twice daily, direct flights from Southampton to Munich Monday – Friday and one flight per day on Saturdays and Sundays. The schedule change affects the weekday evening flight from Monday 31 October onwards, for flights departing from Southampton to Munich, which will now depart Southampton at 18.45 and arrive into Munich at 21.30 (local time) and the weekday afternoon flight from Munich to Southampton, which will now depart Munich 17.15 and arrive into Southampton at 18.15 (local time).
The earlier departure of the Southampton to Munich evening flight opens up a range of new connection possibilities for leisure and business travellers from the south-east. Through bmi regional’s code-share agreement with Lufthansa, they can now use Southampton airport to fly long-haul, via Munich, to Hong Kong, Singapore, Beijing as well as connecting to a host of European cities including Graz (Austria), Cluj (Romania), Budapest (Hungary), Poznan (Poland), Copenhagen (Denmark), Dresden (Germany), Wroclaw (Poland), Krakow (Poland) and Bucharest (Romania).
All passengers enjoy a 20kg checked baggage allowance, complimentary in flight bar and snack service, speedy 30 minute check-in and allocated 2:1 seating.
Commenting on the enhanced timings, Jochen Schnadt, Chief Commercial Officer said: “The Southampton to Munich route was bmi regional’s first route out of the south-east of England and it’s proved immensely popular with both corporate and leisure customers. The adjusted flight times mean that, via our code-share agreement with Lufthansa, passengers can connect to destinations throughout the Far East and Eastern Europe with the convenience of checking their baggage right through from the departure point to the final destination.”
The amended flight times will come into effect from 31 October 2016 with one-way fares starting at £72. Flights are available to book now at www.bmiregional.com
