bmi regional removes fuel surcharges on all routes

18th December 2008 Print
bmi has announced the second phase of its market leading campaign – the removal of fuel surcharges on its regional network from 17th December. This means travellers will enjoy lower fares when they fly bmi from regional airports direct to cities across the UK and Europe.

The first phase of the campaign launched in early November with the removal of fuel surcharges on the bmi UK & European network to and from London Heathrow. The initiative recognised the current economic situation and the need to provide more affordable and transparent air fares for business and leisure travellers.

Peter Kenworthy, commercial director, bmi regional 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 regional network links seven UK airports to 14 UK and European 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. All bmi regional flights offer complimentary onboard catering with additional benefits through bmi’s Diamond Club, the UK’s most generous frequent flyer programme.
