t is always very busy at this time of

the year as many of us make plans to

complete end-of-year business and plan

holiday trips to enjoy some much-

needed time to relax, especially over the festive

Christmas and New Year holidays.

This is a time which really brings to life the

role that Flybe plays in connecting and bringing

families and friends together; operating from

33 UK and 46 European airports means, with a

Flybe airport ‘Close to You’ and

with over 450 flights a day to

choose from, we can offer you

plenty of affordable options to a

great selection of destinations.

At this special time of giving,

we are again collecting on board

for our charity partner Cancer

Research UK to support their

Kids & Teens programme. You

always embrace our fundraising

efforts with great enthusiasm and, with almost

£850,000 raised to date, we are working towards

achieving our first £1-million milestone. We

remain hugely grateful to you for your continued

support and generosity in boosting our own

staff effort towards raising money for this very

deserving cause to help beat cancer sooner.

It has become a tradition for us here at Flybe

to operate a Santa flight every December from

one of our airport bases for local young children

receiving cancer treatment. This year, it is the

turn of George Best Belfast City airport and we

are always thrilled that Santa is able to take a

Welcome on board

I

moment out of his busy Christmas preparations

to join us for a while and meet these special

children for a pre-Christmas treat. Our grateful

thanks go to our many partners who, through

their generosity and goodwill, help make this

possible.

We know that many of you travelling with us

this month are students returning home for the

holidays. Don’t forget that we offer a year-round

double baggage allowance to all who have a valid

student ID card, so you can fly

with two 23kg bags for the price

of one.

We do hope that this generous

hold luggage allowance, especially

to those who have no other

convenient option but to fly, will

make your travel experience with

us more affordable and enjoyable.

For more details, check out our

website, or take a look at

Flybe’s

pages later in this issue.

I would like to take this opportunity on behalf

of everyone at Flybe to thank you for choosing

to fly with us this year, and to extend good

wishes to you for the New Year.

We look forward to welcoming you on board

again in 2019.
