In today’s busy world, even the best laid travel plans are subject to change at any time ......and so, in another UK aviation first, Flybe has today launched ‘Flybe Flex’, a discounted budget-friendly stand-alone product offered during the initial online booking process. It gives those buying a basic Essentials ticket the added benefit to make changes to the date, time and route of their chosen flight any time prior to their departure date. By pre-purchasing Flybe Flex, a customer will save £58 on a return flight per person.
Available at the point of booking on new Essentials bookings only, made online at www.flybe.com from today, Flybe Flex waives the £35 per person per flight online change fees normally applicable should customers wish to amend their ticket. It gives the peace of mind of knowing that any number of future itinerary changes will be covered for an upfront once-off payment from £9.99* (fee per person per sector and dependent on time between booking and date of flight; fare difference may apply).
In commenting on this new product that follows hot on the heels of the airline’s introduction of its new Price Lock-Down option earlier this month, Simon Lilley, Flybe’s Director of Marketing says Flybe Flex will give its customers not only additional choice but also the much-needed peace of mind when confirming their travel plans, be it for business or leisure.
* Available for Essentials bookings with Flybe UK and codeshare flights but excluding those operated by Flybe’s franchise partner, Loganair or Flybe Finland.
