by Tiffany Millar on April 1, 2010

Flybe introduced 24 new services on Sunday for passengers to choose from this summer. This will allow the carrier to serve 190 routes in the UK and Europe, including flights to destinations like Portugal, Spain, Croatia and France.

The British carrier says that they will be offering the biggest number of connections to regional France this summer. Flybe is set to offer 42 routes in and out of 11 British and 12 French airports. These new routes will include services from Newcastle to Hanover; from Humberside to Malaga; and from Birmingham to Avignon. The carrier will also serve flights from Newcastle, Edinburgh, Norwich and Belfast to Guernsey. Other new flights will include from Newcastle and Exeter to Hanover; from Southampton to Verona; and from Birmingham to Limoges, while new services from Gatwick, Jersey and Isle of Man will also be launched.

Flybe also plans to continue servicing several popular routes that they have in the past. These include links from Belfast City and Aberdeen to Jersey and from Birmingham and Exeter to Dubrovnik.

The chief commercial officer of Flybe, Mike Rutter, said that even though the aviation industry has been through a great challenge in the last year, the carrier is delighted to offer passengers 190 routes to choose from this summer, while providing quality and affordable flights to as many desirable destinations as possible. Along with Loganair, their franchise partner, Flybe will continue being committed to keeping the UK on the move, he continued, by expanding their network and providing quality and innovative travel options. Rutter added that they are also happy to report that holiday bookings have had a significant return during the last half year.
