Flybe announces new Jersey-Humberside route
Flybe, Europe's largest and most successful regional airline, has underlined its long-standing commitment to the Channel Islands by announcing another new summer route to Jersey, this time from Humberside. It is available for booking today with a lead-in fare from £59.99 one way including taxes and charges, for Saturday travel between May 2nd and September 19th, 2009.
This announcement brings the number of new routes introduced by Jersey's leading carrier for Summer 2009 to four in total, following its first batch of summer sun routes unveiled last week.
All four routes to Jersey - from Dundee, Inverness, Humberside and Manston in Kent - have been launched in partnership with Jersey-based C. I. Travel Group who had previously operated the routes as exclusive charter flights. All routes will operate once a week, on Saturdays.
The majority of seats on each route will be sold by C. I. Travel Group as part of its tour operation to the Channel Islands through well-established holiday brands including Airways Holidays, Discover Jersey & Lewis's; the remaining seats being sold direct to travellers by Flybe on www.flybe.com .
Mike Rutter, Flybe's Chief Commercial Officer, comments: "Our summer schedule to the Channel Islands shows us continuing to strengthen our operations with several new routes from UK regional airports. This year, our partnership with C. I. Travel Group will enable us to provide increased capacity to Jersey, offering even more affordable travel choices for those wishing to holiday closer to home."
