BMI cuts fuel surcharges

Tue, 04 Nov, 2008

Budget carrier BMI has announced that it is to cut its fuel surcharges on all flights within the UK and to Europe.

The airline said the price reduction shows the company's commitment to pass on any savings to its customers.

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."

BMI is the second biggest airline at London Heathrow Airport and offers flights to Amsterdam, Brussels, Jersey, Naples and Venice, among other destinations.

The news follows announcements last month that both British Airways and Virgin Atlantic were to cut their fuel surcharges.

Both firms said the decision came in response to falls in the prices of oil and jet fuel.

Meanwhile, BMI also recently announced a number of new services for summer 2009, including Almeria and Toulouse.
