Flybe's 2011 summer programme takes to the skies

Europe's leading regional airline launches 7 brand new routes and choice of up to 3,195 flights a week to top summer destinations

Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline and the UK’s Number One domestic carrier, starts operating its 2011 Summer Schedule on Sunday March 27th with an affordable choice of popular routes that includes seven brand new services; the return of Flybe’s popular Jersey to Nice, and weekly Belfast City to Guernsey flights and a choice of 11 key routes to and from London Gatwick with up to 424 flights a week.

Flybe’s reputation for providing quality, affordable and reliable travel across an extensive network designed for both business and leisure travellers is reinforced with this year’s comprehensive summer schedule that is available for travel through to October 30th.

Summer travellers can also take comfort from the fact that they are travelling with an airline that has won the Best Short-Haul Airline of the Year Business Travel Award for the second consecutive year: and which has shone in the Civil Aviation Authority’s 2010 On-Time Performance Report by leading the way over many other major industry suppliers operating over 25,000 flights a year from CAA-reporting airports.

Flybe’s new Summer 2011 routes are as follows:

  • Manchester to City of Derry (5 x week) starting 19th May
  • Belfast City to Manston (Tues/Thurs/Sun)  from 26th May
  • Southampton to:
    • Clermont Ferrand (Mon/Thurs/Sat) from 21st May to 24th September
    • Beziers (Mon/Fri) from 27th May to 23rd September
    • Pau (Wed/Sun) from 25th May to 25th September

  • Edinburgh to Knock ( Tues/Thurs/Sun) from 19th April
  • Exeter to Düsseldorf ( Saturdays ) starting 23rd April

Mike Rutter, Flybe’s Chief Commercial Officer, comments: “We are delighted to be able to offer passengers more than two hundred routes this summer and to providing affordable quality flights to such a broad range of desirable destinations. Our track record for on-time performance is also a major plus for those seeking the best possible hassle-free travel when heading off on holiday or for business.”
