From late October, Flybe will introduce a new daily mid-morning service to Edinburgh from Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA), marking the first service to Scotland from LJLA in almost 10 years.
With a flight time of just 1 hour 15 minutes, the route is expected to be popular with both leisure passengers looking for a short break and those travelling on business. The route will be Flybe’s fourth from LJLA, complementing the airline’s other services to the Isle of Man, Belfast City and Amsterdam (which starts on 7 September, 2015).
Flybe is also committing to further expansion from LJLA by adding capacity to its existing Isle of Man and Belfast City services with an additional daily departure to both destinations. This will see 4 daily departures to the Isle of Man and 5 daily departures to Belfast City, taking the total number of flights to and from Liverpool by Flybe to approximately 150 per week.
Flybe’s chief commercial officer, Paul Simmons, stated, “We’re committed to bolstering regional connectivity across the UK and into Europe and our two new Liverpool routes are a clear indication of this commitment. We are naturally delighted to be extending further the Flybe presence at Liverpool John Lennon Airport and look forward to welcoming on board many new passengers in the upcoming months.”
