bmi removes fuel surcharges on European and domestic routes

21st November 2008 Print
London Heathrow’s second largest carrier bmi has today removed all fuel surcharges on its flights within UK and Europe. This initiative recognises the current economic situation and the need to provide more affordable and transparent air fares for business and leisure travellers.

Peter Spencer, bmi managing director, said:

“bmi has always been a market leader in UK and Europe and is committed to providing the best value flights backed up by our renowned friendly service. Our extensive UK domestic and European mainline network links 17 cities and the abolition of fuel surcharges on these short haul flights are designed to help encourage more business and leisure travel.”

bmi is a full service airline and does not have any hidden baggage, check-in or seat selection charges like its low-cost competitors. It carries proportionally more business customers than other airlines and offers a full range of check-in options including online and Self-Service as well as paperless boarding on some routes, where boarding passes are sent straight to customers’ mobile phones.

Within the UK and Europe, the bmi mainline network offers flights between Heathrow and Aberdeen, Amsterdam, Belfast City, Brussels, Dublin, Durham Tees Valley, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Hanover, Jersey, Leeds Bradford, Manchester, Palma and Venice. The airline also operates an extensive regional network based from hubs at Aberdeen, East Midlands and Manchester airports. bmi also boasts the UK’s most generous frequent flyer programme, Diamond Club, allowing members to earn rewards faster.
