Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline, has today put on sale its 2015 Summer schedule that features 144 routes, including 16 that are brand new, offering a total choice of up to 3,011 flights a week for travel from 29th March 2015. The airline will also start based operations from Bournemouth, re-open its Aberdeen base and start flying regional routes from London Stansted.
This will also be the first summer for the airline’s seven routes from London City. Having awarded the PSO contract, Flybe will continue to keep Cornwall connected with its daily multi frequency service between Newquay and London Gatwick. In addition, its most popular ski routes from Birmingham, Cardiff, Exeter and Southampton will extend through to April 2015 to accommodate Easter holiday travel. This, coupled with the many routes on sale throughout Scotland and regional Europe offered by Flybe’s franchise partners, Loganair and Stobart Air, plus the return of popular sun routes from Exeter and Southampton, means that customers have an ever increasing choice of point to point, sea and sun travel options.
Seats are on sale now for booking at www.flybe.com with one way fares from £24.99 including taxes and charges and currently available for travel between March 29th and September 3rd, 2015.
In providing a ‘One Stop to the World’, Flybe’s seven codeshare partners offer regional customers extensive opportunities to enjoy seamless long haul travel. For the first time this summer they will be able to take advantage of the additional onward connections to Asia, Canada and the US available via its newest codeshare partners Cathay Pacific, Finnair and Aer Lingus when flights are booked either direct from those airlines’ websites or through a local travel agent.
