      Thursday 13 Oct 2011

      Flybe, Europe's largest regional airline and the UK's Number One domestic airline, has today announced its 2012 summer schedule that offers passengers at George Best Belfast City Airport a choice of up to 522 flights a week to an extensive range of attractive destinations across the UK and regional Europe.
       
      The summer schedule includes the re-introduction of the airline's popular direct flights to Jersey as well as a convenient timetable featuring direct services to another 16 UK destinations that include Manchester, London Gatwick, Newcastle, Paris Charles de Gaulle, Southampton as well as a number of key destinations in Scotland.

      Flights are available for booking at www.flybe.com from £19.99 one way including taxes and charges and currently available for travel between March 25th and September 9th 2012.

      The summer programme is also enhanced by Flybe Connections, a convenient "one-stop" through-booking service which opens up a vast selection of new affordable routes for Flybe passengers. As an example, travellers can now book all the way from Belfast to Faro or Bergerac with just one transaction.

      In committing to keeping business moving during these continued economically challenging times, Flybe also offers a comprehensive choice of key routes with convenient schedules designed for business travellers. These, coupled with Flybe's popular Economy Plus product offering a range of added value bonuses such as extra baggage allowance, access to Flybe's dedicated Executive Lounges and free flight changes, are designed to ensure that Flybe remains the number one choice for quick and comfortable point-to-point business travel.

      Flybe has established a strong presence at London Gatwick airport and provides up to five return flights daily from George Best Belfast City Airport. The airline now flies over four times more domestic routes than any other airline at Gatwick and for the first two reported quarters of 2011, has received the airport's new Gold Award for outstanding punctuality.

      Andrea Hayes, Flybe General Manager Market Development comments: "We are confident we have come up with summer travel options that are both extensive and affordable for both business and leisure passengers for Summer 2012. We are also pleased that, through our many codeshare partners, we are able to offer our customers even more travel choice that extends further our reach across Europe and the rest of the world.

      "Flybe is committed to responding to our customer's needs and we know that many welcome the opportunity to plan their summer travels as early as possible. We appreciate that this is especially true during these uncertain economic times as families and business travellers look to make their money go further and take advantage of the lowest fares available."
