Flybe reveals Scottish plans

Wed, 28 Nov, 2007

Flybe has announced a major expansion of its routes from Scotland starting from next spring.

It is to commence two new services from Glasgow Airport on March 30th 2008 to Cardiff Airport and Paris, with further flights to Newquay and La Rochelle to follow.

The regional airline will also launch a new Edinburgh Airport to Cardiff Airport service on March 30th and flights to Rennes from the capital on May 3rd.

Mike Rutter, the airline's chief commercial officer, said the new routes were key to Flybe's "long-term commitment to offering sustainable, reliable and convenient travel to our passengers".

He added: "We will continue to bring exceptional service and low-cost travel to the regions whilst promoting our positive environmental policy."

The two new routes from Edinburgh Airport add to the recent rapid expansion of customer choice from the capital.

BAA Scotland recently unveiled the 100th destination reachable direct from Edinburgh Airport, when a Flyglobespan service to the Croatian city of Dubrovnik was confirmed.
