JULY 2019


Flight Time



ith the much-anticipated holiday

season about to take off, I am

sure you will be looking forward

to all that the summer months

have to offer and to making the most of the lovely long

days and a well-earned break.

For anyone who is a keen sports fan, it’s the perfect

time to book a long weekend away to enjoy the

very best events of the season. And from tennis at

Wimbledon to cricket at Lords, the Women’s Football

World Cup and the Tour de France,

there’s a sporting event to suit all tastes.

For those of you with an interest in the

arts, it’s the perfect opportunity to head

to the Edinburgh Festival or to one of

the dozens of music and literary festivals

being held across the length and breadth

of the UK and throughout mainland


And what better way to get there

than to travel with Flybe? Take advantage of the UK’s

largest domestic network with our many routes to and

from key hub airports offering convenient onward


One out of every two domestic flights in Britain is a

Flybe flight and at the height of summer, a Flybe flight

takes off every two minutes, providing a comfortable

and speedy alternative to grid-locked roads, long, slow

ferry crossings and jam-packed trains.

Additionally, when flying with Flybe, you can

be assured that our number one priority is, and

always has been, the safety of our passengers, and

this commitment extends across all aspects of our

operations, including our on-board service. For this

Welcome on board

reason, we have taken the step of removing peanuts

and other nut-based products from our on-board

Café Flybe menu. We will also continue to take other

preventative measures to reassure any passengers who

advise us they are at risk, although we must stress that

no public environment can ever be guaranteed to be

100 per cent nut-free.

Finally, this month marks my last

Flight Time

message to you as, after much deliberation, I have

taken the difficult decision to step down from my role

as Flybe CEO. It has been the greatest

privilege to lead Flybe over the past

two years, and to have met and received

valued feedback from so many of you

during this time. I thank all of you who

remain loyal customers.

As our airline marks its 40th

anniversary this year, it is about to

embark on an exciting journey when,

following a seamless transition, it will

begin a new era as part of the Connect Airways

group. I know I speak on behalf of all my colleagues

in assuring you that as it moves confidently into

the future, our airline will continue to provide, and

improve upon, the quality service and unmatched

regional connectivity that you have come to expect –

and continue to serve you for the next 40 years!

Whatever your reason for flying with us today, thank

you once again for choosing Flybe. Enjoy your flight.


“It has been the
