Passengers taking flights from Heathrow Airport will have the opportunity to board bigger planes following an announcement from bmi.
The airline revealed that it will introduce wide-bodied Airbus A330 planes to their routes from Heathrow to Cairo and Amman.
This move comes on the back of a positive start to the services, which were launched in 2007 as part of a wider expansion programme which saw the company launch new routes from the London hub.
Nigel Turner, chief executive of bmi, said: "Both Cairo and Amman have got off to excellent starts and are performing well ahead of expectations in passenger numbers and revenue.
"However, there exists even further potential for the development and growth of these routes. It was always our intention to upgrade the aircraft operating some mid-haul services to a wide-bodied product and these routes in particular are ideally suited."
Bmi is currently the second biggest carrier flying out of Heathrow Airport, which forms part of its 1,800 services each week to destinations worldwide.
