Flybe has added a number of new routes out of Stansted Airport.
The airline will this week started flying between Stansted and the Isle of Man, whilst on 29th March it will fly between Stansted and Newcastle. Then, from 16th May, it will fly between Stansted and Newquay.
Flybe, who hold importance on their ‘regional connecting airline’ ethics, have a good relationship with airport owners, MAG, and believe that as a result of its presence, it could help the airport with its bid to attract long haul carriers.
Speaking about the new services, Flybe’s Chief Commercial Officer, Paul Simmons, said, “There are good traffic flows both ways between the London area and the Isle of Man, for both business and leisure. Flybe had previously operated routes including the Isle of Man out of Gatwick but had quit the airport as a result of its fee structure which favoured the operators of larger aircraft.”
