Cardiff Blues principal partner bmibaby, the award winning airline with tiny fares has announced that it is 'Open for Business' with the launch of a radical new set of services specifically tailored for the demanding needs of today's business traveler.
Recognising that each business traveller has different requirements, the airline has introduced the concept of 'only choose what you need' to business air travel, allowing passengers to select from a range of services which they require for each specific trip.
The range of services that bmibaby will now offer include:
Business passengers on the day of travel can choose to catch an earlier or later return flight than the one they originally booked providing there is seat availability.
On line check in All business passengers, for no extra cost, can avoid the need to queue up at check in and speed through to departures by using bmibaby's new on line check in facility.
Access to a number of executive lounges Business passengers booking a flight on bmibaby will have the option to access executive lounges at airports throughout the UK and Europe for a fee of £15 per visit.
Guaranteed seat being reserved at time of booking
All business passengers can travel safe in the knowledge that a seat will be reserved for them at the time of booking for a fee of £3.50 per flight.
No restriction on cabin baggage weight All business passengers will benefit from unlimited weight restriction on their one allowed item of hand baggage
Crawford Rix, managing director, bmibaby, said: "The launch of bmibaby's new business initiative will transform the way people choose to conduct business trips by air. Our new 'only choose what you need' approach allows business travelers to select only the services they want to use and avoids the 'inflexibility' of business products offered by existing carriers.
"All passengers booking a flight on bmibaby will be able to benefit from flexible flights, on line check in, executive lounge access, unlimited cabin baggage allowance and the reassurance of knowing that a seat will be reserved for them.
"In addition, passengers will also be able to earn miles on bmi Diamond Club and redeem these worldwide across over 800 destinations through Diamond Clubs membership of the Star Alliance network."
