Flybe increases capacity on Manchester to Paris flights

Cheap flights carrier Flybe has announced that it will be increasing passenger capacity on two of its Manchester to Paris flights.

Europe’s largest airline has taken the move after Air France announced that its pilots would be striking over a dispute regarding the airline’s retirement plans.

Commenting on the decision, Flybe’s chief commercial officer Mike Rutter said that the airline would be increasing its capacity to ensure that passengers didn’t get caught up in the Air France pilot strike.

"With our great value fares and user-friendly timetable between the UK and Paris, no-one need miss out on that important trip, whether it’s for business or leisure," he said.

Flights will be operated by the airline’s state-of-the-art 118-seat Embraer 195 jet aircraft, with bookings being made available immediately.

Flybe won the Best Domestic Airline at the Annual Scottish Passenger Agents Association (Spaa) Travel Awards and the Most Environmentally Responsible Budget Airline at the British Travel Awards at ceremonies earlier this month.
