FLYBE launches new weekend summer sun connections via SOUTHAMPTON

New weekend leisure hub
Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline, has launched a new weekend leisure hub operating via Southampton Airport that, as part of its 2017 Summer schedule, makes it possible to travel to 12 European destinations from eight departure points across the UK. The seasonal flights operate at weekends between 27th May and 3rd September 2017 and are available to book now at www.flybe.com
76 connections to regional France and Italy
The new schedule opens up 76 connections to regional France and Italy on Saturdays and Sundays, the majority of which are brand new services to some of Europe’s most sought-after summer holiday destinations. Regional passengers will be able to seamlessly connect through Southampton to their final destination with the minimum of fuss and with just one initial check-in at their originating airport.
The airline’s schedule is tailored to ensure that no matter what part of the UK passengers are flying from, the connecting time at Southampton is kept to an absolute minimum and, from wheels up to touchdown, passengers will reach such attractive locations such Biarritz, Bordeaux or Verona in just a few hours.
New Southampton leisure hub
Vincent Hodder, Flybe’s Chief Revenue Officer comments: “We are delighted to introduce the new Southampton leisure hub to our regional passengers this summer. It further enhances the ever growing number of connections available to our customers wanting to enjoy fast, convenient travel farther afield from their local airport.”
Southampton Airport’s Managing Director, Dave Lees adds; “It is great that Southampton Airport is now a weekend leisure hub for Flybe which allows the rest of the UK to enjoy a ‘breeze through’ experience en route to their holiday destination. The airport prides itself on being fast, easy and friendly and is delighted that it can now help even more passengers reach summer sun from their local airport.”
