Flybe has announced its first ever route from Bournemouth with a service to Manchester which begins on 27 May.
The year-round six times a week service will gives both business and leisure travellers a convenient choice of regional routes from one of the South Coast’s most popular destinations.
Flights on weekdays will depart Manchester at 1040 and arrive in Bournemouth at 1140, with the return leaving Bournemouth at 1205 and arriving in Manchester at 1305. On Sundays the service will leave Manchester at 1015, arriving in Bournemouth at 1115, turning around for departure from Bournemouth at 1140 and getting back into Manchester at 1240. There is no Saturday service.
Mike Rutter, Flybe’s chief commercial officer, commented, “We’re delighted to be adding this new destination to our extensive choice of regional services. It not only reflects our commitment to continued growth at Manchester Airport, where we are the largest scheduled airline, but also our development into new regions. Our new Bournemouth route will be especially convenient to those living and working in the more westerly counties of the South Coast, so extending further our extensive regional presence.”
