Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline and the UK’s Number One Domestic carrier, has today announced its 2012 summer schedule that offers passengers a choice of 141 routes with up to 2,938 flights a week to an extensive range of attractive destinations across the UK and regional Europe. Tickets are on sale now for booking at from £19.99 one way including taxes and charges and currently available for travel from March 25th through to September 9th 2012.

Flybe has established a strong presence at London Gatwick airport from where it will operate 10 routes during Summer 2012 that, as well as its convenient UK regional services, also includes the return of a twice daily service to Nantes and the ever popular weekend operation to Bergerac.
