Avis celebrates 10 year Flybe partnership


New '10 things you’ll love about us' campaign to celebrate relationship

Leading car rental company Avis and Europe’s largest regional airline Flybe, today celebrate a decade of working together in close partnership, delivering value-added benefits and award winning customer service to millions of passengers each year. To mark this longstanding and exclusive relationship Avis and Flybe are launching their "10 things you’ll love about us" campaign.

Over the past 10 years the partnership has seen both brands commit to a common set of business objectives including; service, environmental sensitivity, exclusivity, innovation, comfort, range, destinations, rewards and simplicity. Together these goals have been met via a number of implemented programmes and services made available to customers, from Avis’s Select Series offering to their innovative 3 minute promise - providing customers a swift and easy travel experience. In addition to this the partnership has also been successful in meeting a series of environmental goals with both companies boasting one of the most environmentally efficient fleets within their industries.

It is as a result of this successful partnership that both brands have achieved industry recognition over the last year with Flybe scooping Best UK Domestic Airline Award at the 2012 Northern Ireland Travel and Tourism Awards and Avis being awarded #1 Car Rental Company as scored by the USA 2012 Customer Loyalty Engagement Index.

Darren Peacock, Head of Marketing and Leisure Sales, Avis Budget Group UK comments, "From the beginning of the Avis and Flybe partnership we’ve worked together to offer our customers an unrivalled service that we’re proud of. A decade later and we’re delighted to be able to celebrate the success of our partnership in rolling out the "10 things you’ll love about us" campaign. We look forward to celebrating the year not only with Flybe but importantly with our customers, keeping them at the heart of what we do."

Simon Lilley, Flybe’s Director of Marketing comments: "Flybe is pleased to be an integral part of this creative campaign that clearly demonstrates the importance of our 10 year landmark partnership with Avis. It is important for us to work with businesses that share the same philosophy as Flybe. We consider it an added bonus that Avis continues to also add value to our customers when they are making their online business and leisure travel. It is a partnership we hope will continue for many more years."
