Flybe flies high for winter

More than 2,600 flights a week on 121 routes, including four operating for the first time this winter, have gone on sale from Flybe in its programme for winter 2017/18. The airline is putting more than 3.6m seats on the market.

First-time routes include the airline’s new multi-frequency services between Aberdeen and Edinburgh to Heathrow, and weekly flights between Cardiff and Rome, as well as business, ski and winter-sun destinations. 

The programme also includes up to three flights a day between Gatwick and Newquay, plus services to Geneva from Birmingham, Cardiff, Exeter, the Isle of Man, Jersey and Southampton, and new weekly flights between Manchester and Innsbruck.

Flybe CEO Christine Ourmières-Widener says: “This will be the first season of our plans to optimise and standardise our route network with a renewed focus and we’re pleased to have maintained a comprehensive range and diversity of destinations.

“The schedule has been carefully designed to satisfy those wanting to book convenient affordable business travel, passengers wanting to use Flybe services to connect seamlessly to worldwide destinations with our airline partners, and those looking for short leisure breaks over the autumn/February half-terms and Christmas/New Year holidays.”
