Flybe to establish Manchester “network hub”
Published: 08/03/2012 - Filed under: News »
The regional carrier is to set up a hub at Manchester airport, allowing the creation of 86 new point-to-point connections through the airport, including Norwich to Aberdeen and Exeter to Inverness.
The airline says it has worked with Manchester to reduce connecting times on services “to as little as 35 minutes”.
Flybe will provide the new services in conjunction with franchise partner Loganair, which operates flights from Norwich.
New connections include Aberdeen to the Isle of Man and Norwich, Belfast to Norwich, Exeter to Inverness, the Isle of Man and Norwich, Inverness to the Isle of Man and Norwich, and the Isle of Man to Norwich.
In addition existing connections including Belfast to Exeter and Edinburgh to the Isle of Man will see extra frequencies added. For a full list of new and additional service, see the table below.
Flybe says it is “the first ever independent carrier in the UK to create a regional network hub” of this nature.
