Between 5 February and 28 March, Flybe is boosting winter services on its Manchester routes to Amsterdam, Belfast City, the Isle of Man, Milan Malpensa, Newquay and Paris Charles de Gaulle.
Flybe’s Manchester–Amsterdam service is to benefit from a second daily flight from Monday to Friday, meaning two return flights every day will now be operated by 88-seat Embraer 175 aircraft.
The airline will deploy one of its larger 118-seat Embraer 195s on a new late afternoon service to and from Belfast City to provide extra capacity on a choice of four weekly flights, whilst service between the Isle of Man and Manchester will be increased to five flights on Sundays with the larger E195 also beginning to operate the late afternoon flight from Monday to Thursday.
Milan Malpensa is another connection which will be served by an E195 upgrade on Mondays and Saturdays and the Manchester–Newquay flights will see a second Sunday flight added for winter weekend travel.
Finally, an extra flight will be added each day between Mondays and Thursdays on the Paris Charles de Gaulle route, with some flights offering extra capacity with an E195. This gives travellers to Paris the choice of up to seven flights a day.
