*The Alternative Scheme
This scheme rewards our more frequent flyers and costs £200 annually in advance, then every hour you fly in that year is reduced by £10. Very simple - if you are going to fly more than 20 hours / year, this is well worth considering as the more you fly, the more you save!
Ask at the office to join the Alternative Scheme - you can join at any time during the year.
