une marks the start of our summer on-

board fundraising collections for our

charity partner Cancer Research UK,

which we will continue through July in an

effort to reach the £1m milestone. We are extremely

proud that 2019 marks the 10th anniversary of our

partnership and we’re honoured to be associated

with such an effective charitable organisation, whose

research is dedicated to bringing forward

the day when all cancers are cured. We

remain hugely grateful for your continued

support and generosity, which boost the

fundraising efforts of our own Flybe staff.

With warmer days arriving, thoughts

turn to holidays and now is the ideal

time to plan a summer break. It has been

reported that domestic leisure travel in

the UK has increased by 6 per cent since

2017 (

Mintel, 2018

) and, whether or not this is linked to

Brexit or the economic uncertainty related to travelling

abroad, the fact is that people are taking more short-

break holidays, opting for a ‘staycation’ and travelling

to visit friends and family within the UK.

If you are considering staying closer to home this

year and not taking a typical overseas holiday, Flybe

can offer a faster, more convenient and affordable

option. Some great destinations and ideas for short

trips include flying from Southampton to Edinburgh

for the world-famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival (flight

time is just over 90 minutes), from Heathrow to the

UK’s surfing capital of Newquay, Cornwall (just 70

minutes), or from Inverness to the beautiful Channel

Island destination of Jersey (just two hours).

Welcome on board

If you are planning to head slightly further afield,

then check out our multi-frequency flights from your

local airport to one of our many hub destinations

such as Amsterdam, Birmingham, Dublin, Heathrow,

Manchester or Paris. These offer multiple options for

onward travel to the rest of the world, including many

by our codeshare partners.

Although it is a joy to finally welcome the long

summer days, our plans are already well

advanced for winter and we published

our 2019-20 Winter schedule last month.

It features a great range of destinations,

with close to 100 routes operating

around 2,500 flights a week between 27th

October 2019 and 28th March 2020, with

an average flight time of just 55 minutes.

We know that many of our customers

like to book their business and leisure

travel well in advance, particularly for Christmas travel

or winter skiing trips, so do take the opportunity to

secure our lowest-possible fares and the very best

availability by booking your tickets early.

Our customers remain at the heart of everything

we do and it is our pleasure to continue to provide you

with unrivalled regional connectivity. So, wherever

you are flying today, I thank you once again for

choosing to fly there with us.
