Flybe unveils 'Price Lock-Down' fare option in another industry first

9 May 2014

Leading regional airline becomes first UK carrier to give online customers opportunity to hold chosen online fare for up to 24 hours

Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline, has become the first UK airline to offer its customers the opportunity to ‘hold’ their preferred online fare for 24 hours with the launch of its ‘Price Lock-Down’*. By guaranteeing that the price of their chosen flight itinerary is held, travellers now have the benefit of being able to check and finalise all their travel details before confirming and paying for their Flybe flight.

Simon Lilley, Flybe’s Director of Marketing, comments: “We appreciate our customers have busy lives and that making travel plans should be as quick, easy and convenient as possible. To this end, our new ‘Price Lock-Down’ is an enabler to travel, allowing Flybe to guarantee the price of a flight for 24 hours so our online bookers can go ahead and firm up any other travel details with complete peace of mind.” 

“We’re also pleased to once again be the UK industry leader in introducing this additional benefit for our online customers that gives them more flexibility and choice than any other airline when initiating travel plans.”

Flybe’s ‘Price Lock-Down’ is available from just £5 on all Just Fly and Get More bookings made online at and when made no later than 14 days prior to the date of travel.
