Flybe restarts flights next month – here's where they'll be flying to

FLYBE is set to restart flying next month and will have 23 new routes by the summer.

Just two years after the airline collapsed and more than 2,000 people lost their jobs, Flybe is back and will begin flying again on April 13.

Initially, the airline will have seven routes, but by August it will have 23 routes operating across 16 airports in the UK, France and the Netherlands.

Flybe will have crew and aircraft bases in Birmingham and Belfast City, and the pair of them have more than half of the routes.

Belfast will have the most routes, with links to Birmingham, Glasgow, Leeds Bradford, Heathrow, Edinburgh, East Midlands, Manchester, Southampton, Inverness and Newcastle.

Internal UK flights will begin first, followed by flights from Amsterdam to Birmingham and East Midlands at the end of April.

Flights to French airports Avignon, Brest and Toulon Hyères will begin in July.

The airline will also re-establish the service between Heathrow and Leeds Bradford, which was abandoned by British Airways at the start of the pandemic.

One-way flights begin from £29.99 on most routes, but flights from Heathrow are more expensive, at around £50.

Flights to France are pricier, with a one-way ticket from Birmingham to Avignon costing £156.99 in July.

Flybe chief executive Dave Pflieger said: “We think our new flights will benefit everyone who wants low fares and more flights to go on holiday and visit loved ones.

“Our goal is to create an airline that people love, and we aim to do that by making air travel on Flybe an easy and enjoyable experience so you will fly with us again in the future.

"The new Flybe team has worked tirelessly over the past year to create an airline that delivers on price, schedule, and choice, and we look forward to having you book a ticket on and start flying again next month, this summer, and in the many years ahead!”

Flybe went into administration in March 2020 with the loss of 2,400 jobs as the pandemic destroyed large parts of the travel market.

Before then, the airline flew approximately eight million passengers a year, both in the UK and Europe.
