Flybe boosts Manchester Airport’s French connections

A year-round service to Lyon and winter ski flights to Chambery are being introduced by Flybe from Manchester airport.

The Lyon flights are running on a daily basis with one-way fares starting at £29.99.

Chambery will be served between December 20 and March 19, 2017 with flights on either Tuesdays or Sundays.

The regional airline’s chief revenue officer, Vincent Hodder, said: “Lyon is an appealing option for both business and leisure travellers with frequent daily flights that give customers the flexibility they need when arranging their travel plans.

“We’re also pleased to announce an expansion to our ski destinations with the addition of Chambery joining our Geneva and Toulouse routes.”

Manchester airport commercial director, Stephen Turner, added: “We’re delighted to see the launch of Flybe’s new daily service to Lyon and the addition to its winter schedule.

“We’re confident both routes will prove hugely popular with the 22 million people in our catchment area. They’re perfect destinations for people looking for a summer city break or even to explore the slopes.”
