Norwich to Exeter air route

One of the UK’s most difficult road routes has been eliminated with the re-introduction of a daily Norwich to Exeter air service, flown by Loganair under a Flybe franchise.  Flight time is 75 minutes.  By road the journey is around 320 miles (5½hrs minimum) along some of the UK busiest motorways.

Commenting at the launch, Loganair’s Chief Operating Officer Jonathan Hinkles said: “Today’s launch is a significant step in the development of Flybe’s network of services from Norwich International Airport. 
“We were delighted with the level of advance ticket sales ahead of the launch and are confident the re-instatement of this daily route will offer our customers a speedy and cost-effective service between Norwich and Exeter.

With the introduction of the Dornier, Flybe has now also increased the daily Manchester service to three flights each way on weekdays.  The aircraft will also operate the first ever direct service from Norwich to the Isle of Man from Saturday, 26 May. www.flybe.com
