Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline, is offering triple Avios on its six London City routes to customers making a booking during May, and travelling during May and June.

This offer is available until 31st May 2015 and Avios will be automatically awarded.

Head of Marketing at Flybe, Wade Eagar, comments: “Our triple Avios offer now benefits further those customers choosing to book with Flybe, making it even more economic sense to fly around the UK with us. Even Network Rail agrees - as has been recently revealed, the Network has spent more than £1.3m on UK flights in the last two years as it was cheaper for their staff to fly rather than to take the train!

“We are committed to providing the best service possible to our passengers. Not only are we faster than road or rail, we are also cheaper than rail on eight out of 10 routes on which we compete.”

Flybe operates flights to London City from Aberdeen, Amsterdam, Belfast City, Dublin*, Edinburgh and Exeter.

Avios is a world renowned travel rewards programme with millions of members and has proved popular with Flybe customers since it was adopted by the airline back in October last year.
