bmi suspends Mumbai operations

A long term technical problem on one of bmi's Airbus A330 aircraft has forced the airline to suspend its daily Heathrow to Mumbai service indefinitely. The airline is in discussions with the manufacturer Airbus about the reasons for the technical failure, as well as the length of time to achieve its repair.
The airline has been actively seeking an alternative unit as cover during the prolonged absence of the Airbus A330, which is now into a fourth week and could extend to mid December. However, bmi said that searches have been unable to locate a suitable aircraft that would satisfactorily meet its operational requirements and service delivery standards.
Passengers already holding reservations should contact the airline or their travel agent directly.
