Flybe cancels and adds

Partly owned by British Airways, Flybe has confirmed it is to pull out of its Aberdeen to Gatwick service at the end of the airline summer season 28 October.  It was announced in January 2008 that flights between Aberdeen and Gatwick would be taken over by Flybe following the decision of BA to drop the route.

On the plus side the airline has jumped into the gap at East Midlands Airport following the demise of bmi and last Monday (10 September) inaugurated services to Edinburgh and Glasgow. 

The frequencies have been conveniently timed to allow business travellers the opportunity of day return travel and the added ability to take advantage of onward connections to the Highlands and Islands from Edinburgh with Flybe’s franchise partner, Loganair.  Both airports are served thee times daily (twice on a Saturday) with Q400 turboprop services each taking about 70 minutes. www.flybe.com
