Flybe upgrades late Friday flight ahead of weekend six nations match

Flybe will be using one of its larger aircraft on the last flight of the day from Dublin to Southampton on Friday 26th to cope with the increased demand from Irish fans wanting to travel to London to watch their team’s crucial Six Nations Rugby match against England at Twickenham on Saturday.

The airline will operate one of its popular 118-seat Embraer jet aircraft on the 2035 departure from Dublin in making sure that no Irish rugby fan will miss out and limited seats are still available for booking now at


The move re-iterates Flybe’s commitment to bringing affordable, convenient travel to its customers and builds on Flybe’s tradition of championing sporting activity in the regions in which it operates.



Flybe’s Chief Commercial Officer, Mike Rutter, says: “At Flybe, we always try to respond quickly to the needs of our passengers and the aircraft upgrade from our usual 78-seat Q-400 is a perfect example of this.


“We never fail to be amazed by the sporting passion demonstrated by our passengers as they travel to support their teams and are only too happy to help them fly their team’s flag wherever possible.”
