From 29 March 2015, Flybe begins operating its summer 2015 schedule, which marks the opening of a new base in Bournemouth, the re-opening of its base in Aberdeen and the start of regional operations from London Stansted alongside the introduction of 16 new routes.
Flybe’s Bournemouth base will operate flights to Amsterdam, Biarritz, Deauville, Dublin, Glasgow, Jersey, Manchester, Paris Charles de Gaulle and Toulon. New routes from Birmingham include Bastia in Corsica, and Biarritz, while Southampton will begin services to Bastia and Milan Malpensa and London Stansted will be linked to the Isle of Man, Newcastle and Newquay.
Twelve new winter routes have also been extended through to summer 2015, including Flybe’s seven services from London City to Aberdeen, Amsterdam, Belfast City, Dublin, Exeter, Edinburgh and Inverness.
The other extended winter routes are between Exeter and Newcastle, Inverness and Dublin, London Southend and Dublin, Manchester and Amsterdam and finally, the Flybe shuttle service calling at Jersey, Southampton, Leeds, Bradford and Aberdeen.
CCO of Flybe, Paul Simmons, remarked, “It’s going to be a busy summer. Over the last twelve months we have continued to grow and develop the airline to provide the most cost-effective, efficient and flexible service for our passengers. Our 2015 summer schedule boosts further the large selection of flights to great city and sun destinations.”
In addition, Flybe’s most popular ski routes from Birmingham, Cardiff, Exeter and Southampton will extend through to April 2015 to accommodate Easter holiday travel. This, coupled with routes on sale throughout Scotland and regional Europe offered by Flybe’s franchise partners, Loganair and Stobart Air, also provides passengers with an increasing choice of point-to-point, sea and sun travel options.
