The airline will start services to Paris and Dusseldorf on April 27 and to Nantes on July 4.

The return flight from Paris will be at 11:20 and 16:40 Monday to Friday and at 21:55 on Sunday, arriving back in Bristol at 22:10.
Bristol to Dusseldorf will operate six times a week, Sunday to Friday, departing Bristol at 17:25 Monday to Friday, and arriving in Dusseldorf at 19:50. The return flight will depart at 20:20 from Dusseldorf to Bristol, arriving back at 20:55. On Sundays, the flight will depart Bristol at 15:00, arriving in Dusseldorf at 17:25, return flight will depart Dusseldorf at 17:55, arriving back in Bristol at 18:30.
The Bristol-Nantes route will fly twice weekly, on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
On Tuesdays, the outbound service will depart Bristol at 1220 and arrive in Nantes at 1430, with the return service leaving Nantes at 1500 and landing in Bristol at 1510. On Saturdays, the outbound flight will depart Bristol at 1530 and arrive in Nantes at 1740, while the return flight will take-off from Nantes at 1810 and land in Bristol at 1820.
Bmi Regional CEO Cathal O'Connell said: "Flying twice a day to Paris means that business travellers can now have a full day of business in the French capital, rather than having to stay overnight.
"Dusseldorf is the centre of the Rhine-Ruhr and an international business and financial centre, renowned for its fashion and trade fairs, and Bmi regional the only airline to connect businesses in the south-west directly to the capital of north Rhine-Westphalia.
"Nantes is the gateway to the Loire region, and the perfect place for a weekend break, or a holiday among the world famous vineyards and chateaux."
Last month, Bristol airport recorded the highest on-time performance rating out of all major small, medium and large airports globally, according to aviation data specialists, OAG.
