Flybe starts operating its 2014-15 winter schedule this Sunday, 26th October with four routes available from the Island to Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester and the return of its popular ski route to Geneva that is being extended through to 12th April 2015 to accommodate Easter holiday travel. In total, Flybe offers a choice of up to 116 flights a week with one way fares from £24.99 including taxes and charges.
This is the third winter season for Flybe’s successful Manchester hub from where Isle of Man passengers are increasingly taking advantage of by-passing congested London airports to make more convenient, seamless onward connections. This can be either onward with other Flybe regional services or farther afield to an extensive selection of long haul destinations through its various codeshare partners, when booked through a travel agent. The most recent of these is with Finnair to Helsinki and onwards to its many destinations that includes 15 in Asia.
Paul Simmons, Flybe’s Chief Commercial Officer, comments: “Regional connectivity is Flybe’s mission and we have worked hard to maintain the continuity we know is so important on the Island’s critical daily lifeline link to and from Liverpool.”
Flybe is always looking at ways to provide improved benefits for its customers and the start of the winter schedule also sees the airline welcome Avios on board with a new travel rewards programme, and Spend & Fly, a simpler way to earn flights with Flybe’s credit card. There is also a new secure onsite parking option offered at most of the UK airports from which it operates when making an online booking – and it will always be the closest available possible to the terminal.
Adds Mr Simmons: “We look forward to welcoming our Isle of Man passengers on board this winter so they can experience for themselves ‘the fastest way from A to Flybe!”
