Summer Sunshine Schedule on Sale

Exeter Airport’s 2016 summer Flybe schedule is on sale with up to 228 flights per week on 17 routes, including popular sunshine destinations Alicante, Faro, Malaga and Palma Mallorca.

The future of the sun routes was secured following a deal between Exeter Airport owners Rigby Group and Flybe last month. Flights to Alicante will operate four times a week increasing to six a week for peak summer.

Malaga will operate four times a week, with additional flights for peak summer, while twice weekly flights to Palma Mallorca will be supplemented with an additional weekend service between July and September. Twice-weekly flights to Faro will also operate throughout the period.

French services on Bergerac and Rennes-Saint-Jacques during peak summer have also returned. Business travellers have welcomed the re-introduction of the direct Exeter to Glasgow route, and the retiming of the afternoon flight from London City, which now returns earlier in the day. The schedule includes three flights a day from Exeter to Flybe’s successful Manchester hub, offering onward international connections.

The deal struck between the airport and the airline to secure these destinations allows passengers to plan their future air travel and bookings can now be made for travel from 27th March through to 30th September 2016.
