Welcome on board your
Flybe flight today.
In the UK, we put our clocks back an hour when British Summer Time ends
later this month. The days become shorter and darker. It is, nevertheless,
when we announce our new Summer 2017 schedule. This is the best time to
book early and take advantage of our lowest-possible fares.
It has been a busy summer for Flybe. We launched our new Café Flybe
on-board menu, becoming the first airline to offer the famous Krispy Kreme
doughnuts. We launched a new portal onwww.flybe.com
with our hotel partnerBooking.com
for last-minute Weekend Express getaways, currently available
from Birmingham and Manchester airports. Customers can secure attractive
flight-plus-hotel deals to great weekend destinations, including Amsterdam,
Paris and Edinburgh. Also, we welcomed many new passengers who decided to
fly in comfort to their holiday destination, saving time and money, rather than
endure the road and rail chaos that seems to have become the norm during
peak travel periods.
Our extensive winter schedule starts on 30th October and features up to 3,256
flights a week on 138 routes, including 19 that are available for the first time this
season. Many of our top regional business routes have multiple daily
frequencies, with adjusted timings to accommodate those looking for speedy
travel, returning home in time for dinner.
Increasing numbers of our regional customers are using the seamless flight
connections we offer to long-haul destinations via our airline codeshare and
interline partners at key international hub airports, such as Manchester, Dublin
and Paris CDG. No other regional airline competitor can offer this very
valuable, time-saving service. We call it Flybe’s
One Stop to the World
. Did you
know, for example, that you can fly from 18 UK and European airports served
by Flybe, and connect onto a Virgin Atlantic flight to North America at
Manchester, Glasgow or London Gatwick airports? Or via our Manchester
hub from Newquay to Dubai with Emirates, from Aberdeen to Beijing with
Hainan Airlines, or from Belfast City to Delhi via Birmingham with Air India?
There are numerous options, all part of our commitment to provide unrivalled
