bmi regional appoints new team of Commercial Management Trainees 

The UK’s most punctual scheduled airline, bmi regional, has appointed a new team of Commercial Management Trainees, based in the East Midlands and Aberdeen offices. Melissa Richmond, Tom Williams and Mike Reynolds will manage business and leisure sales activities across the bmi regional UK & European network.

The Trainees will report to Ingeborg Gillegot, Director Of Scheduled Sales and work closely with Bristol-based Sales Executive, Lynne McGrath.

2015 sees a major extension of the bmi regional's partnership with Lufthansa Airlines with the launch of Rotterdam, Liege and Bern to Munich, extending the airline's presence into Europe. With the recently announced additional capacity on core domestic UK routes and the recommencement of services between Bristol and Milan, the airline has a great platform for sustainable growth, and the new trainees are part of this expansion.

Richmond, who holds a BA (Hons) in Aviation Management, was previously a Flight Supervisor for bmi regional, and brings over seven years of industry-related experience and a wealth of knowledge to the role.  As a Trainee, Williams will combine his lifelong passion for aviation with experience gleaned from attaining an aerospace degree to pursue this unique opportunity in the airline industry.  Marketing degree graduate Reynolds previously worked in business development for companies such as Metro Ecosse.

Paul Sies, Chief Commercial Officer of bmi regional, said: “Fostering new talent is at the heart of our business, and we are delighted to welcome such enthusiastic and well-qualified Trainees to our dedicated team. The aviation sector is as varied and challenging as it is rewarding, and we look forward to impressive results from them.”
