Flybe, Europe’s largest and most successful regional airline, has today confirmed it will move quickly to ensure that passengers are not left in the lurch by bmibaby’s withdrawing its Cardiff to Glasgow route, effective March 29th.
Flybe is currently looking at increasing capacity on this popular route not only to fill the void left by bmibaby but in also reinforcing its commitment in continuing to provide convenient, affordable travel between the two destinations.
Mike Rutter, Flybe’s Chief Commercial Officer says: “The news that bmibaby has cancelled its Cardiff-Glasgow route should not really come as a surprise.
“To welcome bmibaby customers to the Flybe product, we are announcing a special promotion on the route with selected fares slashed by up to 50% and that can be booked on www.flybe.com between midnight tonight and February 2nd for travel between April 1st and 30th June.
“We look forward to welcoming our new customers on this important route and again reaffirm our determination to serving the people of Wales and to becoming Cardiff’s number one airline.”
