New route to Jersey in Flybe summer 2009 schedule at Inverness
Flybe has announced the second phase of its summer schedule for 2009 which sees the carrier offering travellers access to 181 routes nationally for Summer 09, including six routes from the Highlands base.
Flybe's summer schedule at Inverness Airport will see the introduction of a brand new route to Jersey, offering Highland travellers access to the Channel Island situated just off the coast of Normandy in France as well as additional routes to Belfast City, Birmingham, Manchester, London Gatwick and Southampton.
The summer schedule is available for booking today at www.flybe.com for travel between 29th March and 24th October 2009.
"Our summer schedule shows us continuing to strengthen our operations across the UK and Europe with many of our summer routes from the 07/08 schedule returning from March next year as well as increased frequency on many of our services from key bases including Birmingham, Doncaster/Sheffield, Cardiff, Exeter and Newcastle," remarks Mike Rutter, Flybe's chief commercial officer.
"Over the last twelve months we have continued to grow and develop Flybe to provide the most cost-effective, efficient and flexible service for business and leisure passengers, and it is paying off; our customers keep coming back and consumer confidence in Flybe remains strong as we were recently recognised as the biggestmid-market private company in Britain by the Sunday Times HSBC Top Track 250 league table.
"Flybe continues to grow strongly despite tough economic conditions as we attract passengers from high-price, full service airlines and no-service, low cost airlines. Over the last 12 months, Flybe has cemented its leadership of the UK regional domestic market, become the fastest growing airline at London Gatwick and grown strongly in continental European business-only services. This year will deliver more of the same".
