About BMI Regional / Flybmi

British Midland Regional Limited (trading as Flybmi) was a British regional airline that operates scheduled passenger services across the UK and Europe. The airline had operating bases at Aberdeen, Bristol, Chester Hawarden, East Midlands and Newcastle. BMI Regional had codeshares with Lufthansa, Brussels Airlines, Loganair (sister company) and Air Dolomiti. In November 2017, BMI Regional celebrated five years as an independent carrier earlier.

Following BMI's takeover of Bmibaby in April 2012, November 2012 was Bmi Regional’s first month operating as a fully independent airline, after having been sold by British Airways’ parent group IAG.


In total the airline served 31 scheduled destinations (46 destinations including codeshares) across 11 European countries on 28 routes.


The carrier had a mixed fleet of 20 ERJ 135s and ERJ 145s

Class Fares

Bmi Regional was a fully Economy airline, and its cabin was entirely dedicated to providing a quality Economy service.

Economy Class

Bmi Regional only offereed standard seating. The airline described this provision as a “premium”: rather than defining the class as Economy or business, the new Premium class was aimed at being an all-in one service.


Depending on the length of the flights, passengers could enjoy on-board meal options, as well as snacks and beverages. Duty free shopping was available.

All (standard) Economy passengers were entitled to one piece of free checked and carry-on baggage.
