Flybe announces another new route from Birmingham

Leading regional airline to operate new four times a week service to Ireland West Airport Knock airport

Flybe, Europe’s largest independent regional airline, has announced it is to operate a new route between Birmingham and Ireland West Airport Knock on four days a week from October 27th, 2013 with seats on sale at www.flybe.com from £39.99 one way including taxes and charges.

Commenting on the announcement, Head of Public Relations Niall Duffy said, “Flybe is absolutely delighted to launch this new route to Ireland West Airport Knock at the start of the 2013-14 winter season. Given that we are already the biggest airline at Birmingham Airport, when we learnt of the opportunity to offer the route it was an obvious and natural extension to our network. We look forward to welcoming thousands of new passengers onto the service.”

William Pearson, Aviation Development Director for Birmingham Airport, added: “As the Midlands is home to many thousands of Irish descendants, we’re sure that this news from Flybe will be welcomed by those wanting to visit friends and relatives and do business both in the Midlands and the West and North West of Ireland. The service will also help promote tourism and business in both regions and encourage further connections via Birmingham Airport to many other destinations.”

This expansion of Flybe services out of the Midlands’ airport reinforces its commitment to the region with the airline being the largest scheduled airline at Birmingham Airport when measured by the number of aircraft movements. This latest route to Knock increases the airline’s already extensive list of 23 destinations available from Birmingham that, with a choice of up to 636 flights a week, includes those to Belfast City, Dusseldorf, the Channel Islands, Paris Charles de Gaulle, regional France, Scotland and popular ski destinations in winter.
