Andrew Strong, Managing Director Flybe UK comments:“We’re pleased to offer our customers such a wide choice of routes for next summer and that, due to popular demand, we’ve been able to continue operating so many of the new winter routes we’ve introduced for the upcoming season.

“We are confident we have come up with summer travel options that are both extensive and affordable for Summer 2013. We are also pleased that, through our many codeshare partners, our customers have even more travel choices that extend further our reach across Europe and the rest of the world.

“This, combined with the new products we have recently introduced such as three new ticket options, mobile online booking and the dropping of all charges relating to debit card payments, will give travellers added incentive to plan their summer travels as early as possible, not the least of which is also to take advantage of the lowest possible fares.”
