Bmi announces new daily flights linking Heathrow and Basel

British Midland International (bmi) and SWISS have announced new routes from London Heathrow to the Swiss city of Basel.

The new flights start from March 27, with three flights every weekday between London and Basel, and two services on Saturdays and Sundays.

Brenda Morgan, sales manager Ireland for bmi, said: "We are delighted to offer more new routes from Heathrow to boost tourism and business links between Northern Ireland and Switzerland.

"From Basel you can reach some of the best skiing regions in Switzerland and enjoy easy access to Alsace and Germany's Black Forest due to its unique location at the border triangle between all three countries. For our business customers, the new route gives them direct and frequent services to a key Swiss commercial city and the trinational region."
