Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline and the UK’s Number One Domestic carrier, starts operating its 2011/12 Winter programme this weekend offering travellers a choice of up to 2,556 flights a week on a comprehensive range of 106 routes with one way fares from £19.99 including taxes and charges. The airline’s schedule includes two new winter routes from Manchester to Newquay and to Knock in the West of Ireland, Flybe’s new route for winter between Edinburgh and Knock after its successful summer debut, the return of popular ski routes to Chambery, Geneva and Salzburg and winter sun routes to Alicante and Malaga.

At London Gatwick, Flybe has established a strong presence not only as the airline carrying the largest number of domestic passengers from the UK’s second largest airport but also for having received two consecutive Gold Awards for outstanding punctuality. This winter, Flybe is offering a choice of nine routes and up to 394 flights a week to and from London Gatwick.  

In committing to keeping British business moving during these continued economically challenging times, Flybe also offers a comprehensive choice of key routes with convenient schedules designed for business travellers. Key to ‘the Flybe difference’ is offering a more enjoyable low fare travel experience through its quality service ethic and features free assigned seating for all passengers and Executive  Lounges  for its Premium passengers.

Andrew Strong, Flybe UK’s Managing Director, comments: “Our wide choice of regional routes this coming winter gives travellers a wide choice of affordable leisure and business destinations.”

“Flybe is well aware of the need to continue to provide affordable travel especially during these challenging economic times and we are confident that our extensive winter schedule includes the selection of popular routes, including winter sun and ski destinations that will allow families to keep on the move this winter.”
