Bmi Regional is to double the number of routes it serves from Bristol as the airline continues its expansion.
The independent carrier is to launch flights from the West Country airport to Munich, Milan and Hannover from May in addition to the routes to Aberdeen, Frankfurt and Hamburg which had been previously announced.
The three new routes will begin on May 13 with six flights per week on each service. The Bristol to Frankfurt schedule will also increase to twice daily from the same date.
Bmi Regional’s chief executive Cathal O’Connell said: “The launch of these routes to Munich, Milan and Hannover is a continuation of Bmi Regional’s promise to serve key economic and tourism hubs in Europe from the UK.
“We are positioning Bmi Regional for real growth in Bristol and the southwest, having already launched three routes from Bristol before Christmas. These routes have gained real momentum, and, as a result, we are doubling our frequency on the Frankfurt route to twice a day.
