“Our award-winning teams are working around the clock to help and look after customers, and this feedback from MSE is richly deserved for all that hard work.

“As well as looking after customers when times are good, it’s important to look after customers when times are difficult, and we are proud to be doing that.

“We know people remember things like this, and we cannot wait to be flying customers away on their well-deserved holidays again.”
