Consumers that visit flybmi.com using a smartphone will be redirected to the mobile site.

Key features on the mobile site include searching and booking flights, a search for the lowest fares by region, managing existing bookings, online check-in, timetable information and flight statuses, frequently asked questions and airport information.

Bmi Diamond Club members will also be able to access their account and view their miles balance.

In January, bmi named Stuart Beamish as its new head of marketing and product.
