25-year anniversary for bmi service
Wed, 12 Mar, 2008
The airline bmi is celebrating 25 years of services between Edinburgh Airport and London Heathrow Airport.
Established in 1983, the service provided a useful link for business and leisure travellers between the two capitals.
Travellers celebrated the anniversary on board the service and also at the airports, the airline stated.
Managing director of the airline Peter Spancer said: "I am extremely proud that bmi has provided a consistent service between the Scottish capital and London over the past 25 years.
"This landmark really demonstrates how popular this exceptional service is."
In related news, Virgin Atlantic has announced its introduction of self-service check-in kiosks at London Heathrow Airport has been a success.
The machines have been developed to be user-friendly and simple to use, said Janine Donovan, press officer for the firm.
By reducing check-in desk queues and allowing travellers to view and change their seats, the airline has received a very positive response from its customers, she claimed.
