Flybe to fly again

The ‘born again’ airline Flybe is set to fly again.

The air carrier has announced ticketing and route details following the removal of most of Britain’s Covid-19 restrictions last Friday.  

Flights will commence from 13th April 2022 with direct services from Birmingham Airport to Aberdeen, Amsterdam, Avignon, Belfast City, Brest, Edinburgh and Glasgow offering up to 93 departures per week in peak season with more to be announced in the months ahead. 

Last week the carrier announced that Belfast City Airport would join Birmingham as its second crew base.

Dave Pflieger, CEO, Flybe, said: “This week is going to be an exciting time for customers and communities that have been waiting to hear from us about low fares, new routes, and new destinations – all of which are being timed to coincide with the restart of the economy and a return to normalcy after two difficult years for all.   

“As you’ve heard, our team has been working hard for over a year and a half to bring customers a new airline that people will love, and we are particularly excited to be flying to Belfast City Airport and serving Northern Ireland. “Once we start flying from Birmingham, Belfast, and many other cities in the UK and EU, we are confident that a new and improved Flybe will provide customers with great value, more choices, and the opportunity to quickly and more conveniently visit loved ones, go on holiday, and more easily visit customers or attend important meetings”.
