The new, resurrected Flybe has announced its network of destinations.
The British domestic airline will have two UK bases – Birmingham and Belfast City, and serve a range of destinations across the UK and Europe, including London Heathrow.
Much of the network seems to target the more profitable routes of the previous incarnation of the airline, which closed down in 2019 amid financial problems and falling passenger figures as the Covid-19 pandemic took hold.
The Flybe route network is:
From Belfast City to Amsterdam, Aberdeen, Birmingham, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness, Leeds Bradford, London Heathrow, Manchester, Newcastle and Southampton.
From Birmingham to Aberdeen, Amsterdam, Avignon, Belfast City, Brest, Edinburgh, and Glasgow.
From East Midlands to Amsterdam and Belfast City.
From London Heathrow to Amsterdam, Belfast City and Leeds Bradford.
From Southampton to Avignon, Belfast City and Toulon.
Flight start between Birmingham and Belfast on 13 April.
Flights can now be booked on the Flybe website at http://flybe.com/
Like its predecessor, the new Flybe’s fleet is based around the de Havilland Canada DHC-8-400 turboprop, with plans to increase this to over 30 examples as the airline and network grows.
