BMI Regional is a former subsidiary of British Midland International (BMI), which was purchased from Lufthansa by International Airlines Group (IAG) au mois d'avril 2012. BMI Regional was sold to Sector Aviation Holdings in May 2012 and has operated as an independent airline since October 2012. La compagnie a été créée en 1987 as Business Air and started operations in August 1987. Dans 2001 it changed its name to BMI Regional. As a subsidiary of BMI, the airline operated regional services for its parent. Since becoming independent of BMI, the airline has rented a new headquarters at East Midlands Airport and employed an additional 40 members of staff there. BMI Regional has also announced and introduced a number of new routes during 2012 et 2013, including routes from the UK to Hamburg, Milan, Munich, Toulouse, Göteborg, Lyon and Billund. As a subsidiary of BMI, BMI Regional was previously owned by Sir Michael Bishop (50%), Lufthansa (30%) and Scandinavian Airlines (20%). Lufthansa purchased Sir Michael Bishop and SAS’ stakes in October 2009, taking full ownership of the airline group. A restructuring of the group was announced the following month, which also affected BMI Regional’s operations. A suspension of loss-making routes and capacity adjustments within the group resulted in BMI Regional having a surplus of three Embraer aircraft in 2010, and the company began consultations with staff over possible job losses. The excess aircraft were leased to other carriers.
British Midland Regional Limited holds a Civil Aviation Authority Type A Operating Licence, permitting it to carry passengers, cargo and mail on aircraft with 20 or more seats.
