Leading regional airline adds more Edinburgh and Belfast City flights from February

Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline, has updated its London City Airport flight schedules for 2015 to correspond with passenger demand on the routes.

Flybe’s on-time, good value and high-quality services from the capitals of Scotland and Northern Ireland direct to the heart of London have proved popular with customers.


As a result, Flybe has decided to:
-          Increase flights to/from Edinburgh and London City to six flights a day
-          Increase flights to/from Belfast City and London City to four flights a day


Flybe constantly reviews its schedule as part of its disciplined approach to growth. As a result, Flybe is regrettably suspending its Inverness to London City service with effect from Sunday 22nd February due to lower than anticipated passenger numbers. Flights on the Exeter to London City service will reduce from three to two a day from Monday 23rd   February in line with the current business usage. Flybe will continue to review this increasingly popular route and will add extra frequencies back into the schedule when appropriate.

Overall, Flybe expects to fly at least half a million passengers annually on its routes to and from London City Airport. These services provide direct links across the UK and Ireland into the heart of London and offer a faster and cheaper alternative to road, rail and ferry travel.
