FLYBE BEGINS NEW WEEKEND SUMMER SUN ROUTES FROM EIGHT REGIONAL AIRPORTS

New leisure hub at Southampton opens up 11 regional connections to France and Italy

17th May 2017

Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline, has started operating eleven new routes to regional France and Italy from eight UK airports via its new weekend leisure hub at Southampton. The seasonal flights operate each weekend through to 3rd September 2017 as part of the airline’s 2017 Summer schedule from Aberdeen, Belfast City, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Exeter, Glasgow, Manchester and Newcastle.

Operating on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the summer, the majority of routes are brand new services to some of Europe’s most sought-after holiday destinations - Avignon, Bergerac Dordogne, Bordeaux, Brest, La Rochelle, Limoges, Nantes, Perpignan-Rivesaltes, Rennes, Toulon-Hyères, and Verona (excepting Belfast).

Flybe’s weekend leisure hub not only gives regional passengers the added benefits of extra choice but also the opportunity to seamlessly connect through Southampton to their final destination with the minimum of fuss and with just one initial check-in at their departure airport.


The airline’s schedule is tailored to ensure that the connecting time at Southampton is kept to an absolute minimum and, from wheels up to touchdown, passengers will reach their final destination within a few hours.
Vincent Hodder, Flybe’s Chief Revenue Officer comments: “We are delighted to introduce the new Southampton weekend leisure hub to our customers this summer. It further enhances the ever growing number of connections available to those wanting to enjoy fast, convenient travel farther afield from their local airport.”
