Andrew Strong, Managing Director of Flybe UK comments: “Our summer programme from Scotland provides the perfect travel solution with an extensive range of affordable travel possibilities. It also gives customers the benefit of the large number of regional point-to-point connections available on the extended Flybe network through improved connectivity and reduced connecting times at our key hub at Manchester. Flybe’s codeshares with Air France, British Airways, Etihad and KLM provide extra opportunities for seamless onward international travel that extends even further across Europe and the rest of the world when booked through a travel agent.
“This, combined with the many added value products we offer, such as mobile check in and the dropping of debit card charges for online bookings, gives travellers added incentive to plan their summer travels with Flybe.”
