Europe’s largest regional airline Flybe has announced its 2009 summer schedule, which sees the carrier introduce new services to Jersey as well as increase its frequency on a number of key routes.
The airline’s summer schedule begins on March 29th and sees new routes being launched to Jersey from Inverness, Dundee and Manston in Kent. In addition, Flybe will operate a greater number of flights from Birmingham, Doncaster/Sheffield, Cardiff, Exeter and Newcastle.
Commenting on the summer schedule, which runs until September 7th, Mike Rutter, Flybe’s chief commercial officer, said that it would allow the airline to strengthen its operations across the UK and Europe.
"Over the last twelve months we have continued to grow and develop Flybe to provide the most cost-effective, efficient and flexible service for business and leisure passengers," he said.
Mr Rutter added that the airline was recently recognised as the biggest mid-market private company in Britain in the Sunday Times HSBC Top Track 250 league table.
Flybe announced last month that its first Aberdeen flight crewed by an all-Aberdeen based crew took to the skies on its London Gatwick service.
