Manchester hub for Flybe

Flybe, which claims to be Europe’s largest regional airline, has introduced last weekend a new Manchester hub operation that offers an additional 86 regional point to point connections and 12 new flights through the airport.  It also coincides with the clocks going forward in most of western Europe and airlines changing over to the summer timetables.  Key to the initiative is improved connecting times both domestically and for onward international travel.  Passengers travelling to and from Aberdeen, Belfast City, Edinburgh, Exeter, Glasgow, Inverness and the Isle of Man as well as those flying with its franchise partner Loganair from Norwich will benefit in particular.

Regional highlights for summer include two new summer routes from Manchester to Newquay and Knock in Western Ireland, to where a new service from Leeds Bradford will also start; also Newcastle to Bergen (Norway); Newquay to Belfast City and Norwich; between Birmingham and Waterford (Ireland) and from Southampton to Tours (France).  In addition, Loganair are offering four new flights out of Norwich (to Exeter, the Isle of Man, Manchester and Southampton). www.flybe.com
