Flybe drops LCY flights

Seven months after starting flights from London City Airport (LCY) Flybe has confirmed it is dropping its Dublin service in May.   The airline cites competition from BA on the route, while a refinanced CityJet, the incumbent carrier, is benefitting from being un-hedged on fuel, it is suggested. 

Meanwhile Flybe’s LCY – Inverness operation has stopped and Exeter frequencies reduced.   The airline states that Aberdeen and Edinburgh are doing well though and frequencies have increased. Flybe is also to cancel its twice-daily service from Southend to Dublin.  It had previously been operated by Aer Lingus Regional (owned by Southend Airport landlord, the Stobart Group) and was not part of the codeshare that linked the route into the Aer Lingus transatlantic hub.  Paul Simmons, Chief Commercial Officer, made a brief statement regarding Southend:
“Flybe has a disciplined approach to the routes it operates, which means we continually review our network to ensure that we offer the right choice of destinations for our customers.  As part of a recent review, we have taken the decision to suspend this route effective 13 April 2015 as passenger numbers regretfully continue to remain below those projected."  www.flybe.com
