FLYBE STATEMENT

Flybe at Bournemouth

10th November

Following an exhaustive review of its route network prior to finalising the 2016 Summer programme, Flybe has determined it will no longer have a requirement to base aircraft in Bournemouth with effect from 27th March 2016.

Flybe remains fully committed to delivering unrivalled regional connectivity throughout the UK and can however reassure its South Coast passengers that it will continue to develop and operate an extensive choice of attractive routes for business and leisure travel from its long established base at Southampton.

Chief Commercial Officer, Paul Simmons comments: “We have decided to consolidate the business network that was in place at Bournemouth, into our Southampton base. This will enable more frequency and more choice to our customers through consolidating our South Coast operation into one airport. As a result, we regret that we are unable to continue to operate the leisure routes we flew from Bournemouth in next year’s schedule.”
