Leading regional airline expands route network from Birmingham with daily flights to key French regional destination

Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline, has today announced its latest brand new route from Birmingham that offers daily weekday flights to Lyon from May 1st operated by one of Flybe’s brand new 88-seat Embraer 175 jet aircraft. Fares are available for booking now at www.flybe.com with special introductory fares available from £39.99 one way including taxes and charges.

The brand new year round service follows Flybe’s successful launch of its Birmingham to Amsterdam route late last year and is expected to benefit similarly a mix of business and leisure passengers. Lyon is the largest conurbation in France after Paris and offers a wealth of opportunities being not only a major centre for the banking, chemical, bio and pharmaceutical sectors but also a UNESCO World Heritage Site and renowned capital of all things gastronomic.
