Andrew Strong, Managing Director Flybe UK comments: “We are confident we have come up with summer travel options that are both extensive and affordable. This, combined with the new products we have recently introduced such as three new ticket options, mobile online booking and the dropping of all charges relating to debit card payments, will give travellers added incentive to plan their summer travels as early as possible, not the least of which is also to take advantage of the lowest possible fares.”
Managing Director of Southampton Airport, Dave Lees adds: “We are delighted that Flybe has taken over the route to Barcelona from Vueling. It proved very popular this summer with both leisure and business passengers and is a great link between the two great cruise ports. The addition of Nantes to our list of French destinations this autumn further positions us as the gateway to France from the UK, and will serve the local business community and those looking for short getaways in the beautiful Loire Valley.
