Travellers in the West Midlands can now fly directly from Birmingham Airport to Warsaw, the capital of Poland, with bmibaby.
The airline opened the new connection on May 27th and expects to carry more than 700 people between the two cities in the route’s first week.
Crawford Rix, managing director of the airline, said that the inaugural flight was 95 per cent full and described the number of forward bookings as "extremely encouraging".
Bmibaby now serves 24 destinations from Birmingham, with Warsaw joining the likes of Alicante, Rome, Palma, Bordeaux and Edinburgh.
Peter Vella, the airport’s business development director, said he was "delighted" at the launch of bmibaby’s new route to Warsaw.
He added: "Warsaw offers passengers the chance to visit the capital city of Poland which is one of the fastest growing cities in Europe and has recently experienced significant redevelopment making it the up and coming city that it is now."
