Flybe celebrates recent arrival by inviting passengers to sample Jersey treat

Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline, enlisted the help of ‘Daisy’ the pantomime cow to help serve free Jersey ice cream to passengers today in  celebrating further its arrival at Bournemouth Airport and its new summer service to Jersey. Flights operate daily through to 29th August with two flights offered on Saturdays to accommodate additional holiday demand.

Paul Willoughby, Flybe’s Regional General Manager UK (South) said:  “We’ve been pleased with the support for our hot summer routes out of Bournemouth. Jersey is proving particularly popular and we’ve already flown thousands of passengers to the island since the route started in May.

“We are helping keep Dorset customers ‘moo-ving’ by offering them some really attractive routes that include those to popular French regional holiday destinations such as Biarrtiz, Deauville and Toulon. Also with those which offer greater connectivity both onwards throughout the UK and those which offer increased travel options via our Manchester hub and with our codeshare partners through Amsterdam and Paris.”

Flybe launched its new operation out of Bournemouth Airport in March with nine new routes - to Amsterdam, Biarritz, Deauville, Dublin, Glasgow, Jersey, Manchester, Paris Charles de Gaulle and Toulon-Hyeres.

In total, the airline’s 2015 summer schedule offers a choice of up to 53 flights a week to and from Bournemouth with one way fares from £24.99 including taxes and charges.
