Roy Kinnear, Flybe’s Chief Commercial Officer comments: “Scotland is a significant market for Flybe and our Edinburgh to London Heathrow route has grown from strength to strength since its 2017 launch. We are therefore pleased to add yet another daily flight from the start of our 2019 Summer schedule for our customers’ convenience which will offer an even better spread of frequency across the day. It also accommodates convenient day return travel for our business and corporate customers. The added frequency also offers increased connectivity options with our long-haul codeshare partners operating out of London Heathrow.”
Gordon Dewar, Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport added: “Increasing frequency to any of our destinations is always welcome and we are delighted that Flybe has introduced this additional service based on the strength of the route and the feedback from passengers. The route lends itself to business travel thanks to the direct connection to the city of London, but it’s also one that appeals for leisure travel by widening the options of further travel, making travelling from Edinburgh ever easier.”
