Flybe Adds Extra Six Flights A Week To Manchester From Exeter

Leading regional airline boosts popular route with extra weekday and Sunday flights

15th September 2014

Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline, is to boost its popular Manchester service from Exeter with six extra flights each week from October 26th, 2014. It has added a fourth weekday flight departing mid-morning operated by one of its E175 jets, and a third flight on Sundays that leaves in the early afternoon.  One way fares are from £34.99 including taxes and charges are on sale now at .

Paul Simmons, Flybe’s Chief Commercial Officer said:  “Being ‘the fastest way from A to Flybe’, we have scheduled these extra flights to ensure there will be a convenient choice throughout the day, not just for those visiting Manchester but also for those making the many onward connections with Flybe available through our Manchester hub to the rest of the UK. This is not to mention the hundreds of onward global connections also available out of Manchester that includes those with our codeshare partners, all of which are now easily accessible from Exeter without the need to battle overcrowded South East airports!” 

Matt Roach, Exeter Airport’s Managing Director added:  “South West passengers have welcomed the ease of onward connectivity through Flybe’s Manchester hub. The additional flights, providing extra capacity on the route, further increase the ability to connect to a huge range of domestic and world-wide destinations from Exeter.  Four flights a day will mean that connecting times with major
international carriers will be minimised and people from the South West could be departing to
Sydney, New York, Toyko or Cape Town in a shorter time than if they had travelled to a London
airport.  Passenger baggage, which is checked-in at Exeter, also goes all the way to the final
destination without the need to reclaim at any transfer airport. With the start of Flybe’s flights to
London City airport in October, these are exciting times for air travellers in the South West. ”

This winter, Flybe will operate 12 routes from Exeter Airport offering a choice of up to 202 flights a week that includes up to 50 flights a week to and from Manchester.
