The Nuremberg and Gothenburg routes will launch on 8 May 2017, with six return flights per week. Fares start from £79 one way and £89 one way respectively.

Attractions in Graz, Austria, include Schlossberg and the Clock Tower; Projekt Spielberg – Red Bull’s home of motorsports and the venue of Austria’s F1 race; Steirische Weinstrasse: a wine region which is also known as the Austrian Tuscany; Thermenregion: a spa area home to nine thermal spas; 10 golf courses including six 18 hole courses, one of them a championship course; and is also a gateway to some of Austria’s best ski resorts, including Schladming and the Dachstein region.

Nuremberg has a vast arts and culture scene with museums dedicated to design, painting and modern art.

Gothenburg boasts six Michelin Star restaurants, Scandinavia’s biggest amusement park, Liseberg and Gothia Towers, a hotel with an open air, glass bottomed swimming pool, on the 19th floor.

Commenting on the new launches, Jochen Schnadt, chief commercial officer from bmi regional, said: "We are delighted to be introducing flights from Birmingham as part of our ever expanding portfolio.  Bmi regional has always offered customers an array of up and coming destinations to explore and enjoy, and we anticipate all three routes to be popular.  Given the many issues we are facing in different parts of Europe and the world these days, many people are looking for new experiences in more familiar regions and our new destinations have an abundance of interesting and exciting experiences to offer to customers. We’re also happy to once again be bringing the bmi regional level of quality, convenience, service and professionalism to travellers from the Midlands."
