been launched at such a high-profile and forward-thinking airport"

Rob Cooke, the Airport's Head of Aerodrome Operations, said,

to airlines and offers a high quality product with competitive
pricing. With the forecast growth expected at Birmingham
in the coming years, particularly in the long haul market,
