Birmingham and Flybe

Flybe has announced eight new routes for the winter from Birmingham with two brand new destinations in Hamburg and Oslo and a year-round extension of six summer routes.  The programme starts on 26 October.

Now firmly established as Birmingham Airport’s largest carrier, the airline says that due to early successes, it will extend to year-round on six of the new routes it is operating this summer.  Flybe will continue to operate up to 28 weekly flights to Bordeaux, Cologne, Florence, Oporto and Toulouse, and with frequency aimed to provide convenience for business travellers and those passengers wanting a short break on the continent.  Also staying on for the winter is the three times a week Reykjavik service, but this is now earlier to ensure daylight flying hours.
Fred Kochak, Flybe’s UK Routes Director, said:  “Flybe already connects more than 1.5m passengers a year from Birmingham both domestically and throughout Europe.  This news further demonstrates our commitment to providing direct air-links from the regions of the UK, which means passengers do not have to face long road or rail journeys to south east hub airports.”

In total, Flybe will operate up to 350 flights a week from Birmingham on 26 routes as part of its 2014-15 winter schedule.  www.flybe.com
