Flybe’s expanded 2016-17 winter schedule takes off from Birmingham

Leading regional airline’s winter schedule features total choice of up to 375 flights a week across 23 routes including brand new services to Toulouse and Geneva

Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline, started operating its 2016-17 Winter schedule this past weekend (Sunday 30th October 2016) that features a total choice of up to 375 flights a week from its Birmingham hub across 23 routes including brand new daily flights to Toulouse and a weekly Saturday ski service to Geneva. An additional four routes will operate for the first time this winter - to Knock, Luxembourg, Nantes and Rotterdam. Flights operate through to 25th March 2017 with one way fares from £ £24.99 including taxes and charges available for booking at www.flybe.com

The inaugural flight to Toulouse was celebrated with a special cake featuring the heraldry of both cities and arriving passengers were surprised with a presentation of locally sourced ‘purple’ gifts. The city of Toulouse - just a short 1hr 50 minutes’ flight away from Birmingham –is one of France’s most historic cities featuring medieval architecture and unique pink terracotta buildings. It is also the centre of the European aerospace industry and of leading companies within the technology sector.

Flybe is the largest scheduled airline at Birmingham Airport, from where it offers numerous connections not only to the rest of the UK but also through its codeshare partners to the rest of the world.

Vincent Hodder, Flybe Chief Revenue Officer, said:

We have expanded our winter schedule this year from Birmingham not only with new leisure and business routes but also by adding frequency to accommodate the needs of our business customers.

Flybe’s expanded schedule includes increased flights to Edinburgh (up to seven a day) and to Amsterdam (up to six a day).
Flights to Geneva start on 17th December from where there are convenient onward connections to many of the most popular ski resorts in Switzerland, France and Italy. The new route also provides Birmingham travellers with fast and convenient access to a city that is not just at the centre of world politics and finance but which is an attractive ‘must-see’ destination in its own right with a strong cultural heritage that includes many museums and galleries supporting plenty of reasons to visit.

William Pearson, Aviation Director at Birmingham Airport, said:

It is excellent news that Flybe will be increasing its selection of routes this winter for our passengers. Toulouse is one of France’s great cultural and commercial centres with a strong medieval heritage. Geneva is a commercial hub as well as being a fantastic gateway to many world class ski resorts.
We are sure both of these routes will prove popular with our passengers looking for city breaks and fantastic Christmas markets, ski and snowboard holidays or for business trips.
