Regional carrier Flybe has increased its services between Exeter and Dutch capital Amsterdam.

It has added a new through-flight via London City airport on weekday mornings, on which through customers do not have to leave the aircraft.

In addition, the carrier is to add eight extra weekday flights, and three return evening flights – on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays.

The extra capacity means Flybe is to operate up to 16 flights per week between Exeter and Amsterdam Schiphol this winter in total, including a twice a day service on Sundays.

Services will run through to March 28, 2020.

Flybe was acquired by a consortium led by Virgin Atlantic and Stobart Group earlier this year, and is to be rebranded Virgin Connect next year.
