bmi regional joins forces with the Department for International Trade

British owned airline, 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 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.*

As an official partner of the campaign and working closely with Exporting is GREAT, bmi regional will be offering special rates for business travellers and will also be supporting the campaign’s Export Hub as it visits locations throughout the UK. We know that one barrier to exporting is the cost of travel and accessibility to new buyers overseas and this partnership will help bring the costs of travel down for businesses.
