Flybe has announced the launch of two new year-round services to Amsterdam Schiphol as part of its new 2014-15 winter schedule; one will fly from Manchester and the other from London City.
Manchester’s service to Amsterdam will operate daily from 26 October on an 88 seat Embraer 175, whilst flights from London City Airport – on a 78-seat Bombardier Q400 – will take place twice-weekly beginning 1 November.
The two new Flybe routes to Schiphol have been designed to accommodate different types of passengers. The Manchester route hopes to accommodate business travellers with a full day’s diary, whereas the London City–Schiphol flights are conveniently timed on Saturdays and Sundays for weekend leisure travel.
“Flybe is the largest scheduled airline by the volume of traffic movements at Manchester and, based on existing evidence, the demand for flights between there and Amsterdam is already extremely high,” remarked Paul Simmons, Flybe’s CCO. “We are, of course, also delighted to add another route to our fast-growing schedule at London City and look forward to welcoming on board all our new passengers in October.”
These two new services will bring the number of Flybe routes serving Amsterdam from the UK to seven in total, giving passengers the choice of over 150 flights to Amsterdam each week.
