Flybe is boosting winter frequency from Southampton airport to Amsterdam and Paris.

An extra 18 flights a week have been added to the regional carrier’s timetable to the two European cities.

The additional flights will be available between October 27 and March 28, 2020.

The expansion means that the airline will run up to 225 flights a week on 14 routes from Southampton this winter.

Airport managing director Neil Garwood said: “Paris and Amsterdam are brilliant destinations but also really great for connecting to the rest of the world.

“These are two of our most popular destinations and it is great to be able to offer our passengers even more choice.”

Flybe chief commercial officer Roy Kinnear added: “We are committed to grow our services from Southampton and so are pleased to offer our customers added choice this winter with more frequency on these very popular routes.”
