Flybe just pay taxes and charges sale extended to new Newquay to London service

Flybe, Europe’s largest and most successful regional airline, has today announced an extension of its ‘Just Pay Taxes & Charges’ promotion to now include its new service from Newquay to London Gatwick airport. .

The 7-day sale begins today and will be available until 23rd January on tickets booked between Newquay and London Gatwick for travel between 15th February and 31st March, subject to availability. Customers taking advantage of this belated New Year bargain will only have to pay taxes and airport charges when they purchase their ticket.

The move comes at a time when Flybe is experiencing an increasing interest from UK holidaymakers opting to stay in Britain for their 2009 breaks.

As an added bonus, anybody booking with Flybe during January on any of its routes will receive free Book with Confidence insurance cover to protect them should they be made redundant.

Mike Rutter, Flybe’s Chief Commercial Officer, comments: “With the Euro being so strong against sterling at the present time, Flybe is taking the lead in keeping Britain on the move during these tough economic times. Our week-long ‘Just Pay Taxes & Charges’ offer, coupled with our free Book With Confidence redundancy insurance cover, gives something back to our customers, making it an affordable option to take a short, non-stop flight to London Gatwick without breaking the bank.

“We are committed to providing affordable choices with a convenient multi frequency schedule on this key business and leisure route with timings that make it perfect for day return travel. As the only non-stop Newquay to London Gatwick service available to South West travellers, our Just Pay Taxes and Charges promotion demonstrates our commitment to the region and to supporting the local economy through the development of business and leisure travel options.”

“It’s a win-win for everyone! Not only can customers take advantage of the most affordable fares between Newquay and London Gatwick but can also book with confidence that they are travelling with the largest regional airline in Europe. By choosing to fly with us they also benefit from the most comprehensive value add-ons. We would advise people to book now on to take advantage of the lowest possible fares.”
