Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline, has announced the return of its weekly Saturday service between Cardiff and Dusseldorf starting on 1st April 2017. Flights are available to book now at with one way fares from £45 including taxes and charges.

The one hour and forty minute flight also offers Cardiff travellers seamless travel within Germany and beyond through a codeshare agreement with airberlin which provides connections for business and leisure travellers alike. This is via airberlin's Dusseldorf hub to and from Scandinavia, Poland, Italy, France, Austria and Switzerland, as well as to cities around the world, such as Abu Dhabi and New York.

Vincent Hodder, Flybe’s Chief Revenue Officer comments: “We are pleased to be bringing back this popular route from Cardiff to Dusseldorf this summer. Our extended codeshare partnerships mean that not only are flights convenient for travellers looking to take advantage of Dusseldorf’s excellent business and leisure connections, but also to seamlessly connect for onward travel within Germany and further afield.”

Debra Barber, Managing Director and Chief Operating Officer of Cardiff Airport, added: “Dusseldorf is a popular route with our customers so its return to Flybe’s flight schedule is great news. Many visitors from Germany come to Wales each year so it’s important to have as many routes into the country as possible; and, as a city, Dusseldorf is a thriving business destination located on the Rhine, with a bustling foodie scene and world-famous night life. It’s also one of our key hubs for passengers connecting onwards to long haul destinations from Wales’ national airport.”
