Leading regional airline expands European network with new destinations for summer and choice of up to 34 additional flights a week on already extensive schedule

Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline and the UK’s Number One Domestic carrier, will operate an additional six brand new routes from the start of the summer season that offer up to 34 flights a week from March 25th, further expanding the airline’s schedule to a total choice of 208 routes across its extensive network.  There are two brand new routes from Newcastle to Newquay and Bergen (Norway); and new routes from Belfast City to Newquay; to Knock and Waterford (Republic of Ireland) from Leeds Bradford and Birmingham respectively and from Southampton to Tours in France.  Tickets are on sale now at from £26.99 one way including taxes and charges.

The six additional new routes have been chosen so that both leisure and business travellers have a wide variety of travel options available to them and, in the case of the Newcastle- Bergen route, re-instates a much-awaited link between the two twinned cities. They follow hot on the heels of the announcement of Flybe’s new route between Newquay and Norwich and its franchise partner Loganair’s four new flights out of Norwich (to Exeter, the Isle of Man, Manchester and Southampton).
