Hover Customer Relations

Our customer relations team handles a number of issues during the year, and we are occasionally contacted formally for various reasons including complaints & compliments. We monitor these very carefully and we would like to share our correspondence we received for the given month & total passengers travelled. In addition, we have noted our average response time to letters/emails as our target is within 7 days.
