New twice weekly flights on Thursdays and Sundays to Bastia (Corsica) operate for peak summer between May and September; similarly operating for peak summer are the new twice weekly flights to Milan that fly on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Bastia, located on the northern tip of the French island of Corsica, is a thriving ferry and cruise ship port. While, with more than 26 centuries of history and heritage and one of Europe’s most fashionable ‘must see’ cities, Milan needs no introduction as a thriving Italian cosmopolitan destination offering something for everyone from shopping and nightlife, to football, opera and fashion.
Also featured on Flybe’s summer schedule for travel through to 24th October is the continuation of sun routes to Palma Mallorca, Faro, Malaga and Alicante; and flights to regional France are boosted with the return for peak summer travel to destinations including Avignon, Bordeaux, Brest and Limoges.
In providing a ‘One Stop to the World’, Flybe’s seven codeshare partners offer Southampton customers extensive opportunities to enjoy seamless long haul travel through Dublin and Manchester airports. These airports offer the benefit of additional onward connections to Asia, Canada and the US available with the airline’s newest codeshare partners Cathay Pacific, Finnair and Aer Lingus when flights are booked either direct from those airlines’ websites or through a local travel agent. There is now no need to go anywhere near the large hectic London hub airports! And there’s the very real advantage of US pre-clearance when travelling through Dublin on to destinations such as Boston and New York.
