The recent bad weather is not the reason that Flybe has quickly come out with its winter schedule. This is the time of year when airlines introduce their new end of summer time programme, which this year starts Sunday 27 October.
Next winter Britain’s third largest airline, and biggest domestic, will operate up to 2,798 flights a week, in total 106 routes including two brand new ski routes – Inverness – Geneva; Southampton – Grenoble. From Gatwick the airline serves seven destinations: Belfast City, Guernsey, Inverness, Isle of Man, Jersey, Newcastle and Newquay. Loganair flies under the Flybe brand.
Whilst figures for 2012 are not available (from the CAA 8 April) in 2011 the airline carried a record 7m passengers. Its current fleet composes of 57 Bombardier Q400 78-seat turboprops, 14 Embraer 195 118-seat jets and nine of the smaller 88-seat Embraer 175. Flybe is the main and shirt sponsor of Exeter City Football Club and Inverness Caledonian Thistle. www.flybe.com
