Amsterdam is the latest target for Flybe as it rolls out its winter programme.
The airline will operate daily flights between Manchester and Amsterdam using 88-seat Embraer 175 jet aircraft from 26 October 2014. Flight times are scheduled to appeal particularly to business travellers who need to accommodate a full day’s diary. Weekend services are the order of the day from London City with the airline offering Saturday morning and Sunday evening flights on 78-seat Bombardier Q400 aircraft, conveniently timed for weekend leisure travel, from 1 November.
The two new routes complement those already featured in Flybe’s existing 2014-15 winter schedule to Amsterdam from various UK points, both direct and indirect. It also enhances the airline’s debut schedule out of London City, adding to those routes already announced to Aberdeen, Belfast City, Dublin, Exeter, Glasgow and Inverness.
Paul Simmons, Chief Commercial Officer, Flybe, said: “Flybe is the largest scheduled airline by the volume of traffic movements at Manchester and, based on existing evidence, the demand for flights between there and Amsterdam is already extremely high. This is why we have conveniently scheduled our new flights to ensure the best possible times for our business customers and also for those making Flybe connections through our Manchester hub onward to Schiphol." www.flybe.com
