Flybe increases capacity on Scottish flights

Flybe has announced increased services to Edinburgh and Glasgow Airports during the summer season.

The airline will add extra services between Manchester Airport and both Edinburgh and Glasgow, including two new Saturday services from 6 April.

From 1 April, Flybe is also increasing the frequency of its weekday flights from East Midlands Airport to Edinburgh and Glasgow to four per day, adding another flight during the middle of the day.

Capacity on Flybe’s three Saturday services between Southampton and Edinburgh will also increase with the introduction of 118-seat Embraer 195 jet aircraft.

Andrew Strong, Flybe UK MD comments: “We’re pleased to be offering our passengers the added choice of extra Saturday flights between Manchester, Edinburgh and Glasgow. The move highlights our commitment to listening to our customers’ needs and providing them with convenient, affordable travel for weekend summer breaks.

“The two new services also reflect the increasing importance our passengers are putting on our regional hub at Manchester Airport that is being used increasingly not only for seamless domestic and European connections through our extended Flybe network, but also as a fast and more convenient connection for onward long haul travel for those wanting to avoid the hassle of Heathrow.

“We also expect our increased weekday services between East Midlands Airport and Scotland to benefit those business passengers needing more travel options meaning they can manage their time more efficiently.”
