Flybe is to introduce a three times week daily between London City Airport and Düsseldorf from 30 October as part of its 2016-17 winter schedule.
This new route joins existing Flybe services to Amsterdam and Paris Charles de Gaulle as the airline’s third year-round service to continental Europe from the airport. Flight time is around 1hr 30min, Flybe pointing out that passengers are often in the DLR station within 10 minutes of the aircraft actually arriving.
Flybe’s chief revenue officer, Vincent Hodder, said: “Our new route between London City and Düsseldorf is the latest example of Flybe's commitment to providing convenient connections for business and leisure travellers from regional markets, providing added opportunity for customers to travel to the broadest range of destinations from their local airport”.
Matthew Hall, chief commercial officer at London City Airport, commented: “Flybe’s Düsseldorf service will add flexibility and choice to passengers travelling between the UK capital and this major German city, known as much for its vibrant culture as its status as a global business and financial centre.
Adds Mr Hodder: “The German city forms a key hub of the Rhine-Ruhr economic region and the destination also provides quick and easy access to the Rhine River, with lots to do and see in and around the area for leisure travellers.”
