Manchester to Den Helder flights announced

Flybe franchise carrier Loganair has announced the launch of a new weekday service between Manchester Airport and Den Helder (De-Kooy) Airport in the Netherlands.

The flights to Den Helder, which serves as the Netherland’s offshore support hub, will operate on weekdays from 4 March 2013 via Norwich.

Flights will depart Manchester at 8.55am arriving in Den Helder at 12.10pm, local time. A return service will depart Den Helder at 2.30pm, arriving into Manchester via Norwich at 4pm.

The new route is an extension of the popular Manchester to Norwich service, which is flown 3 times every weekday, and once on a Sunday.

Loganair’s chief operating officer Phil Preston said: “We’re extremely happy to be once again extending our international network, launching a route which will be hugely attractive to those working in the oil and gas industries.

“The Manchester – Norwich service has already proven to be very successful and the new link with Den Helder will be an extremely useful service for passengers spread across the UK.”
