Fly on ‘Purple Wednesday’ sale tickets

Flybe, the Exeter Airport-based airline is encouraging travellers to consider flying over the festive period as major works planned for motorways and rail services may cause travel chaos around Christmas and the New Year.
 
Paul Simmons, Flybe’s Chief Commercial Officer, said: “People wanting to visit friends and family for Christmas and the New Year could face difficulties with road and rail travel this year, which is why we are highlighting the convenience of air travel this festive period.”

With just a week until Christmas Eve, Flybe’s ‘Purple Wednesday’ flash sale returns with one way tickets available from just £15 including taxes and charges, when booked before midnight.
 
“Mr Simmons added: “The train from Exeter to London can take more than two hours even on a good day, whereas we fly straight into the heart of the capital in around an hour.

“We pride ourselves on providing the best and fastest regional connectivity and, at this time of year especially. Flybe’s extensive network of routes and convenient connections are a real option – plus, with all the planned rail and road disruption, flying is certainly the faster way to travel.”
