BMI Regional offers discounted flights with government ‘export’ campaign

BMI Regional adds second codeshare with Brussels Airlines

Bmi Regional has partnered with the Department for International Trade to support its ‘Exporting is Great’ campaign with discounts for business travellers across its routes.

The campaign is trying to encourage UK businesses to take advantage of the “global demand” for British goods and services.

The Government wants to get more businesses exporting with a target of 100,000 additional exporters by 2020. 

As an official partner of the campaign, Bmi Regional is offering special rates for business travellers as well as offering all participating businesses a special discount on each Bmi Regional route from the UK.

The code for the discount is EXPORT10 and offers 10 percent off Bmi flights when booking flights here.

According to the latest government figures, UK trade exports are growing but are far below UK import figures.  In October 2016, HMRC reported £28.8 billion in overseas trade, while the figure for imports sits at £39.6 billion.

Bmi regional’s chief commercial officer, Jochen Schnadt said: “Business travel is a key part of our strategy and helping businesses, large and small, to grow their export trade is fundamental to Bmi Regional’s strategy of enabling business.

“We are delighted to be part of this campaign which demonstrates the government’s and industry’s commitment to helping businesses grow and succeed.  Our vision as a partner is to help businesses reach their goals and opportunities by providing a quality, efficient and cost effective transport service,” he said.

International Trade Minister, Mark Garnier said: “The global appetite for UK goods and services has never been greater. With strong demand out there, I’m delighted that the Department for International Trade will be partnering with Bmi to help UK companies seize the opportunities.
