BmiBaby cuts British flights

Budget airline BmiBaby is to stop flying from Cardiff and Manchester after the end of this summer, blaming the tricky economic climate.

The Lufthansa-owned group currently runs 30 flights per week from Cardiff and 40 from Manchester. It will re-locate the majority of the staff, although some 30-plus jobs in Manchester could be at risk. BmiBaby is adding seven new routes from Belfast and two new routes from East Midlands.
