Flybe announces 16 new routes for 2010

Regional airline Flybe will introduce routes to four new destinations in France

Regional airline Flybe will introduce routes to four new destinations in France from Birmingham ahead of next summer’s holiday season.

The airline will begin three weekly flights to Avignon, Limoges and Rennes on March 28th, while four weekly flights to Bordeaux will also commence.

It is part of a major summer expansion plan announced by the airline, which will see a total of 16 new routes introduced nationally during the holiday period.

Flybe chief commercial officer Mike Rutter said that the new routes mean that the carrier will operate 4,000 flights a week from next spring.

"We are committed to ensuring that Flybe offers an extensive range of affordable quality flights to the widest possible range of attractive destinations," he commented.

The route expansion also included new flights to Edinburgh and Belfast from Guernsey and a weekly service to Verona from Southampton.

Passengers travelling from Manchester will be able to book flights to Bergerac and Limoges, while the latter will also be serviced by three weekly flights from London Gatwick.

Last month, Flybe walked away with the Most Environmentally and Socially Responsible Budget Airline prize at this year’s British Travel Awards.
