Following the recent announcement of a new route to Düsseldorf from its Doncaster Sheffield base, Flybe has confirmed it will also operate Saturday flights to Chambery in the Rhone-Alps region of south eastern France from 17 December.
Chambery is renowned as a gateway to a variety of Alpine ski resorts, so the service will offer Yorkshire winter sports enthusiasts easy access to the region’s finest slopes.
Flybe’s chief revenue officer, Vincent Hodder commented, “As Europe’s largest regional airline, we specialise in connecting the UK regions to Europe so we are pleased to add to our already extensive winter schedule from Doncaster Sheffield, the two additional new routes to Düsseldorf and Chambery. We see them as a natural addition to our network from our new base and are confident they will prove attractive options both for business travel and for winter getaways.”
“We are delighted to be adding a further destination to our Flybe winter programme to Chambery, coming swiftly on the back of announcing the new Düsseldorf flights,” added Steve Gill, managing director of Doncaster Sheffield Airport. “Being able to include a winter sports destination as part of our winter programme is a great addition to offer our customers alongside a number of winter sun destinations.”
Flybe’s new year-round Düsseldorf service starts on 30 October and will operate four times a week on Monday, Wednesday, Fridays and Sundays.
