Leading regional airline increases flight frequency on popular route to key French business city
Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline and the UK’s Number One Domestic carrier is boosting its weekday service between London Gatwick and Nantes from March 28th with an additional evening departure and a new summer Saturday service from April 23rd following the success of the route that started last November.
The additional flight on weekday evenings (departing London Gatwick 1800 arr Nantes 2025 – departing Nantes 2050 arr London Gatwick 2115) will operate through to the end of the summer season on October 28th offering a convenient and affordable day-return service especially attractive for those traveling on business; while the new Saturday service offers additional flexibility.
Flybe already operates more routes from the regional UK to regional France than any other carrier and this increased service between London Gatwick and Nantes means that it now offers up to 446 flights each week to 18 destinations in France from 11 UK airports.
Mike Rutter, Flybe’s Chief Commercial Officer, comments: “We have an established reputation for serving regional France from the UK regions. By doubling our daily flights on this popular route between London Gatwick and Nantes, we are demonstrating our ongoing commitment to growing our regional network to and from France and to providing innovative, quality travel options to key travel destinations for both business and leisure travellers.”
