Flybe has announced it will operate a new weekly non-stop summer service from Exeter to Düsseldorf, currently planned to run between 23 April and 24 September 2011.
Flights will depart Düsseldorf each Saturday at 10:10 and arrive in Exeter at 10:50. In the opposite direction, takeoff from Exeter will be at 11:15 with arrival in Düsseldorf scheduled for 13:55 (all times local).
Mike Rutter, Flybe’s chief commercial officer, commented, “We pleased to be able to offer affordable travel direct from Exeter into Germany next summer. The introduction of this new weekly service to Düsseldorf will certainly open up a convenient gateway from the southwest [of England] to this important Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region and should have a large underpin of inbound tourism to assist the southwest economies in these hard-pressed times.”
Passengers from Exeter now have 21 summer routes with Flybe on up to 197 flights a week.
