Leading regional airline reports business and leisure passengers taking advantage of low introductory fare for key new route

27th January 2016

Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline, says the response received from both business and leisure passengers for the special introductory fares to mark the start of its new service between Manchester and Rotterdam The Hague indicates the day return schedule has been well received by both business and leisure passengers alike.

Offering up to two flights a day during the week, early demand has met expectations and there are still a limited number of one way fares available at £19.99 for travel during the first week of operation that starts on Monday 8th February.

Taking just 90-minutes, the conveniently timed flights are perfect for day return business travel giving customers quick and easy access for onward travel from the airport that has excellent transport connections to The Hague, home to the Netherland’s seat of government. Weekend flights are also proving popular for leisure travel, with late afternoon flights on a Friday, returning Sunday evening, allowing customers the opportunity to take advantage of a full relaxing weekend away.
