As most people are now aware BMI is being taken over by IAG who own British Airways in order to use slots that are currently used by BMI, therefore increase their capacity and dependency in Heathrow. IAG have already said that Bmi Regional and BmiBaby are not part of the deal and would be shut down if no buyers are found. We are very close to the end of the take-over now and still nobody has bought the regional and low-cost arms of BMI. BmiBaby still have nothing on sale from winter 2012/2013 and usually have their winter season on sale by this time of the year.
If BmiBaby was to close, what does this mean for Belfast-City, Birmingham and especially East Midlands. If East Midlands loses BmiBaby what will heppen there? Hopefull we will see an increase in Ryanair services and maybe even see EasyJet return which would be fantastic news for the region. In a way, I would prefer if BmiBaby was to go knowing that easyJet would come back and/or Ryanair increases services as they are both stronger companies?
But is a closure of BmiBaby likely to happen? Any thoughts???
