Flight Time

5

t’s a busy time for us all now we

are at the height of the summer

season, operating over 3,000

flights a week on hundreds

of routes across the UK and

mainland Europe.

Looking ahead, we already have

the first phase of our 2019 Summer schedule on

sale at

www.flybe.com .

There will be much more

to come but by putting some of our most popular

routes on sale early, it gives those

of our customers who need or like

to book ahead, the opportunity

to take advantage of the lowest

possible prices.

There are many issues that are

top of mind currently for those of

us in the aviation industry. One of

particular interest to Flybe is the Government’s

long-awaited decision on giving the green light

for airport expansion at Heathrow. There is

no doubt of the need for additional capacity as

demand for air travel increases.

As part of the announcement, the Government

has indicated that up to 15 per cent of the extra

flights using the new runway will be earmarked

for domestic services. This is positive news for

us at Flybe. We will continue working with

Heathrow to explore the viability and commercial

feasibility of developing more domestic routes

there, over and above our existing ones to

Aberdeen and Edinburgh. This is to ensure the

expanded airport, once built, benefits the whole

of the UK.
