FLYBE TO OPERATE FLIGHTS TO LUXEMBOURG FROM BIRMINGHAM

Leading regional airline boosts 2016 Summer programme with new daily year-round flights to key European city

2nd March 2016

Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline, has today (2nd March 2016) announced details of a brand new year-round service between Birmingham and Luxembourg, opening up a destination only currently served in the UK via London. Tickets are available for booking now at www.flybe.com with one way fares from £29.99 including taxes and charges with daily flights starting on 5th September.

Daily flights ensure maximum flexibility when it comes to planning a journey to one of Europe’s most important business hubs which, when combined with Luxembourg’s excellent transport infrastructure and convenient geographical location, means the new route is potentially vital for those who conduct business in Europe.

Luxembourg is not only a key business destination as it is also a hidden European tourist gem featuring dramatic countryside scattered with fairytale-style castles. Luxembourg City is conveniently located for onward travel to France, Germany and Belgium with all three countries under half an hour away by road.

Vincent Hodder, Flybe Chief Revenue Officer- “We are delighted to be adding Luxembourg to our 2016 Summer schedule from Birmingham. Until now, direct flights to Luxembourg were only possible via London. We are opening up yet another key business and tourist destination to travellers outside of the M25 corridor and look forward to welcoming all our new customers on board in September.”
