Flybe taps into undiscovered France

24th May 2006

Flybe is launching the first ever flights from Southampton to Angers and Avignon in France, opening up these regions to international travel for the first time.
As both Angers and Avignon airports were only open to domestic traffic until today, Flybe’s latest services will not only allow local travellers to explore undiscovered areas of France but will also provide a boost to inbound tourism for the region. Flights to Angers in the heart of the Western Loire region commence today, with the service to Avignon launching on 25th May.

Flybe will also launch its first flights for the summer season tomorrow from Southampton Airport to Cherbourg. Consequently, Southampton airport will now serve the largest number of French regional routes from any regional airport in the UK.

Flights are available for booking throughout the summer season at

Mike Rutter, Chief Commercial Officer, Flybe comments: “The launch of these latest routes to undiscovered areas of France sees us delivering on our promise to bring travel choice to the regions. Unlike other low cost airlines, we’re committed to our regional bases and we aim to make European travel less London-centric and more convenient for travellers across the whole of the UK.”
