Customers can also take advantage of the growing number of seamless onward connections with Flybe via its regional hubs in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Manchester, Birmingham and Southampton. Cruise via Southampton for easy access to the Channel Islands and regional France; zip through Birmingham for one-stop service to attractive continental destinations such as Porto, Cologne and Florence; or take a one stop hop through Glasgow to explore the Scottish Highlands. Manchester is Flybe’s premier gateway to all the UK regions, from Devon and Cornwall, to Norfolk, Northern Ireland and almost everywhere in between. Or there’s the opportunity to go even farther afield with one of Flybe’s codeshare partners — Etihad, Air France and KLM — right from your local airport. This is the route that many customers are now taking advantage of, thereby avoiding the hassle and expense of trudging to Heathrow or Gatwick for long haul connections.

Paul Simmons, Flybe’s Chief Commercial Officer, comments: “Time saving, affordable, punctual travel to a wide choice of attractive destinations is what we will be delivering to our customers this summer. Many of the 126 routes we will be operating this summer are specifically scheduled to attract those looking for reasonably-priced, convenient day returns and short breaks. Our customer promise is to be the ‘Fastest way from A to Flybe’, faster than rail and road, aiming to be on time every time.”
