Flybe has held a presentation to mark its ten millionth passenger to travel through Southampton International Airport.
After returning on a flight from Edinburgh this morning (July 26th), Bournemouth resident Janet Cauchi was presented with a year-long pass to Flybe’s executive lounge at Southampton and a bunch of flowers.
Mike Rutter, Flybe’s chief commercial officer, said the carrier is "delighted" to welcome its ten millionth customer at its Southampton base.
His sentiments were echoed by Southampton Airport’s managing director Dave Lees, who said the milestone is "even more special" this year as the airport is marking its centenary year.
"The fact that ten million passengers have breezed through Southampton Airport on Flybe flights demonstrates just how popular their services are with both business and leisure passengers," he commented.
On receiving her complementary pass, Ms Cauchi said it had taken her "breath away".
Last month, Flybe marked its two millionth passenger to travel on its flights from Leeds Bradford International Airport.
