Mike Rutter, Flybe’s Chief Commercial Officer says: “With this brand new route to Guernsey we’re giving Newcastle travellers an attractive and affordable offer for direct summer travel to the Channel Islands. Despite the economic challenges of the past 12 months, Flybe has continued to grow and we remain committed to providing the widest, most convenient range of regional services for our passengers. We expect this new summer service to Guernsey to prove extremely popular for North East travellers.”


Chris Sanders, Head of Aviation Development at Newcastle International Airport comments: “We are delighted with Flybe’s decision to add direct flights to Guernsey from Newcastle International.  It opens up new holiday opportunities from the North East for short breaks and longer stays this summer.  As a tax-free destination, Guernsey, like Jersey, offers great value to holidaymakers who want to enjoy sunshine and beautiful scenery, do not want to go too far away from the UK but still want to be somewhere ‘overseas’.  This summer, Flybe will be operating over eighty weekly departures from Newcastle to UK and European destinations.”   


Mr Rutter adds: “With flights available for booking now, we’d urge travellers to book early so they don’t miss out on the lowest fares possible.”
