Bmi announced enhancements to its Middle East service anchored by the launch of a daily London Heathrow-Cairo flight from Oct. 28 aboard a dual-class A320. The carrier also said it signed an MOU with EgyptAir to enter a codeshare and reciprocal frequent-flier agreement when the service starts. Flights to Amman and Beirut will become daily from Oct. 28. Bmi said restrictions in the bilateral air services agreement between the UK and Egypt will force the cancellation of British Mediterranean Airways' Alexandria service. Passengers will connect to the city through Cairo using the aforementioned codeshare agreement. Jul 23, 2007
