Business travellers from Saarland breathe a sigh of relief: From November 6, flights from Saarbrücken to Munich will be provided by the airline bmi regional (British Midland Regional). Furthermore, connecting flights via Munich to European and worldwide destinations will be available soon.
From Monday to Friday, there will be two flights to Munich per day. On Saturdays and Sundays, one flight is offered. The flying time to the Bavarian metropolis is less than one hour. Therefore, the SCN marketing campaign runs under the slogan `Munich is nearer than Frankfurt now`.
On August 3, the new flight connection will be presented by Jürgen Barke, Chairman of the SCN Board and State Secretary for the Economy, Airport CEO Thomas Schuck, and Jochen Schnadt, Managing Director of BMI regional. For Jürgen Barke, `fast and reliable transport links are an important location factor for the Saarland. So, we are pleased that we could attract the renowned airline bmi regional for a flight connection from Saarbrücken to Munich. Aircraft with a demand-matching capacity and ideal slots to the Munich international flight hub make us feel optimistic that the flights will be well received by business travellers and also leisure travellers. So, we think Saarbrücken Airport is well positioned.`
Also Jochen Schnadt is optimistic: `With the inclusion of Saarbrücken into our programme we now offer two domestic routes from Munich and are looking forward to continue establishing bmi regional as a brand in Germany. Our product is strongly oriented to the needs of business travellers and we think this attractive connection to the Bavarian metropolis can set new accents on the Saarland market and also be an interesting alternative for our customers. The close economic and cultural ties between both regions are a solid base for this new route and bmi regional is pleased to enhance its Munich flight hub with this new flight connection from and to Saarbrücken.`
The consistent slots and connection flights also make Airport CEO Thomas Schuck feel confident: `We expect a positive echo by the passengers as bmi regional has the suitable aircraft for this direct service and, thanks to cooperations with other airlines, many connecting flights within Europe and beyond as well as a direct access to the Star Alliance network will be available via Munich.`
