Flybe launches  improved ‘Price Lock-Down’ fare option

Leading regional airline adds value to customers with opportunity to hold chosen online fare for up to 24 hours

13th June 2017

Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline, has launched an improved ‘Price Lock-Down’ fare optionwhich gives customers the opportunity to ‘hold’ their preferred online fare for 24 hours*. It guarantees that the price of their chosen flight itinerary is held so customers have the benefit of being able to check and finalise all their travel details before confirming and paying for their Flybe flight.

This product is of particular benefit for groups of friends or families planning a trip together and needing to finally agree dates and times, or business people wanting to confirm details of a meeting, before committing to actually making that particular booking.

The fee for this service is £2.50 per person per sector and, for the first time, is now available for bookings made at www.flybe.com more than seven days prior to travel.

Flybe was the first UK airline to introduce this product back in 2013 and the improvements made on re-launch reflect a renewed focus on giving customers more flexible booking options.

Vincent Hodder, Flybe’s Chief Revenue Officer comments: “We appreciate our customers have busy lives and making travel plans should be as quick, easy and convenient as possible. ‘Price Lock-Down’ is an enabler to travel, allowing Flybe to guarantee the set price of a flight for 24 hours so online bookers can go ahead and firm up any other travel details they might have to make with complete peace of mind.”
