Flybe adds summer 2013 routes

New routes to Barcelona and Nice are being introduced by Flybe as part of its summer 2013 schedule.

The regional carrier will serve Barcelona from Southampton three times a week and from Exeter twice a week.

A twice-weekly Nice link from Exeter is also being launched.

Six routes will operate for the first time next summer: East Midlands to Amsterdam, Glasgow, Jersey and Paris Charles de Gaulle; Birmingham to Amsterdam, and Southampton to Nantes.

The summer programme offers 2,774 flights a week on more than 120 routes.

Additional frequency will be operated on many of the airline’s most popular sun routes to destinations such as Alicante, Faro, Malaga and Palma. Manchester to Newquay frequency rises to seven flights a week while Cardiff gains five flights a week to Jersey.

Gatwick gains an additional daily frequency to Inverness and the return of seasonal flights to Bergerac.

Flybe UK managing director Andrew Strong said: “We’re pleased to offer our customers such a wide choice of routes for next summer and that, due to popular demand, we’ve been able to continue operating so many of the new winter routes we’ve introduced for the upcoming season.

“We are confident we have come up with summer travel options that are both extensive and affordable for summer 2013. We are also pleased that, through our many codeshare partners, our customers have even more travel choices that extend further our reach across Europe and the rest of the world.

“This, combined with the new products we have recently introduced such as three new ticket options, mobile online booking and the dropping of all charges relating to debit card payments, will give travellers added incentive to plan their summer travels as early as possible, not the least of which is also to take advantage of the lowest possible fares.”
