Valerie said: “It’s a great achievement for everyone involved at Plane Saver and a reflection of the hard work that the team have done over the last couple of years. It is also important to us, to continue to provide customer service excellence through our high performing customer service team. We are now certain that Plane Saver are in a great position to be able to meet the demands of our new and more traditional membership as well as meet the challenges faced by the sector.
Plane Saver now serves over 13,000 members and works with some of the world’s leading airlines such as British Airways & United Airlines. Additionally, Plane Saver also serves the British Armed Forces across the UK, who now represent over 13% of Plane Saver’s total membership.
In 2018 Plane Saver will celebrate 25 years in business and will use this key milestone to celebrate its legacy within the Airline Industry and to embrace its new vision.
