A new wave of routes to book for next summer have been made available today by Flybe.

Services from Birmingham, Manchester and Southampton join a preliminary summer 2017 schedule which so far covers 59 routes.

These join initial services announced from Cardiff, Doncaster Sheffield, Exeter and Norwich airports.

One way fares starting at £27.99 are available for travel between March 26 and September 9.

The latest line-up includes 12 services from Southampton, 10 from Birmingham and six from Manchester.

Chief revenue officer Vincent Hodder said: “We appreciate that many of our customers plan their next summer holidays well in advance to take advantage of the lowest possible fares.

“This is why we have put a preliminary selection some of our most popular leisure routes on sale early, including some of our summer sun routes and those to regional France.

“This is by no means our complete summer schedule, the full details of which will be released shortly.”
