To better meet the needs of today’s business and leisure travellers, bmi british midland has today announced a major overhaul of its domestic fares on flights to and from London Heathrow.
From 16 April 2002, Saturday night and minimum stay requirements will be removed and extra flexibility ensures customers will now be able to take advantage of fantastic economy fares on same day returns with prices starting from just £29 each way, when booking a return journey.
Other relaxations of existing terms and conditions mean that customers will also now be able to combine fares within each cabin to achieve the lowest fares available on each leg of the journey. Increased flexibility also now means that name changes to tickets can be made up to two hours before departure.
Economy return fares will start from £29 each way to Belfast, £34 each way to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester and Teesside and £40 each way to Leeds Bradford. These economy fares must be booked as part of a return journey and a £2.50 discount each way can also be obtained on bookings made via the website at www.flybmi.com. All bmi british midland flights depart and arrive at key city airports and all tickets include complimentary food and drink during the flight.
Austin Reid, chief executive officer said:
“bmi has a history of being competitive and clearly this is a reaction to the needs of today’s traveller, both business and leisure, to have access to a wide range of flexible fares. bmi remains the only airline from London Heathrow to offer both business and economy cabins and we have applied a new pricing structure to each cabin.
“Business passengers will continue to benefit from all the extras including priority check in, access to exclusive lounges and membership of our frequent flyer programme, diamond club and leisure travellers will now benefit from incredibly low prices on same day returns.”
