Bmibaby cuts flights to Jersey and Murcia
Low-cost airline reduces its winter services due to rising fuel costs and lack of demand.
Bmibaby has cut flights to Murcia and Jersey due to rising fuel costs Bmibaby has become the latest UK airline to announce cuts to its winter services.
Citing a lack of demand and rising fuel costs, the carrier has confirmed the suspension of flights from Cardiff to Murcia and from Birmingham to Jersey until next spring at the earliest.
"In common with most other airlines, Bmibaby has reduced capacity generally in its network over the winter period in light of expected weaker demand and high fuel prices," said a spokeswoman.
Bmibaby added that it would still be operating services from Cardiff to Alicante, and from Jersey to East Midlands, Cardiff and Manchester airports.
Passengers affected by the cancellations will be transferred to alternate services or offered a refund should these changes be deemed unsuitable.
However, reports suggest that many holidaymakers have not yet been informed of changes to their flights, prompting anger among some passengers.
