10 december 2014
Leading regional airline’s sun routes to and from Alicante, Faro, Malaga and Palma to continue with choice of up to 28 flights a week
Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline, has today announced its full 2015 Summer schedule from Exeter featuring 16 routes with a total choice of up to 110 flights a week across its extensive UK and Europe network and that includes the return of its sun routes to Alicante, Faro, Malaga and PalmaMallorca for another season.Tickets are on sale for booking at www.flybe.com from £29.99 one way including taxes and charges and currently available for travel between March 29th and 3rd September 2015.
This will also be the first summer for the airline’s new route to London City and Newcastle: and Flybe’s ski routes to Chambery and Geneva will extend through to April 2015 to accommodate Easter holiday travel. Flights to regional France are boosted with the return for peak summer travel of weekly Saturday services to Bergerac and Rennes.
In providing a ‘One Stop to the World’, Flybe’s seven codeshare partners offer Exeter customers extensive opportunities to enjoy seamless long haul travel through Dublin and Manchester airports. These airports offer the benefit of additional onward connections to Asia, Canada and the US available with the airline’s 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. With these codeshares, there is now no need to go anywhere near the large hectic London hub airports! And there’s the very real advantage of US pre-clearance when travelling through Dublin on to destinations such as New York.
