Flybe 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 May 27th and September 3rd.
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.
Vincent Hodder, Flybe chief revenue officer commented: “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.”
