Bmi Regional has a year-long discount code for its flights.

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

The initiative is part of bmi regional’s support for the ‘Exporting is GREAT’ campaign launched by the Department for International Trade.

The campaign aims to inspire businesses to take advantage of the global demand for British goods and services, with tens of thousands of exporting opportunities available for UK companies globally. The Government wants to get more businesses exporting with a target of 100,000 additional exporters by 2020.

At present, statistics show that trade exports for the UK are growing but are far below UK import figures.  In October 2016, HMRC reported £28.8 billion in overseas trade, whilst the figure for imports sits at £39.6 billion.

The airline’s move follows its previous incentive to help small companies sell overseas – Seats for Start Ups – which ran throughout 2016 with free international flights available.

Commenting on the partnership, 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.”

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.

“We are determined to do all we can to equip UK companies with the guidance and support needed to help them take the next step in their exporting journey. Our new digital hub and partnerships like this will deliver that journey.”
