FLYBE’S STUDENT PASSENGERS BAG A BARGAIN BONUS

Leading regional airline launches new Student Baggage Discount for those travelling to and from four key Flybe destinations

Flybe, Europe’s leading regional airline and the UK’s Number One Domestic carrier, is today launching a new Student Baggage Discount product allowing passengers possessing a valid student ID to carry two bags weighing up to 40 kg in total for the price of only one standard hold bag when travelling to and from Belfast, Guernsey, the Isle of Man and Jersey.

Those students booking online will need to book only one standard bag during the booking process at the normal rate and then produce their valid Student ID when checking in at the airport Bag Drop with the second bag that will be accepted free of charge.

Mike Rutter, Flybe’s Chief Commercial Officer comments: “We recognise that students are facing escalating costs and also appreciate the additional travel costs incurred by those living ‘off’ the UK mainland and in Northern Ireland. As a result we are pleased to offer this ‘buy one, get one free’ offer under the premise that every little helps. We feel sure our buy one get one free Student Baggage deal is going to prove popular with those flying to and from these four key destinations.”
