12 Jun 2015 by GrahamSmith

Flybe has announced its upcoming winter schedule, which includes increased flight frequencies and two new bases at Bournemouth and Cardiff.

The regional airline said that it has increased the number of flights "on many of its most popular routes while others have been re-timed for the added convenience of both business and leisure customers".

It will up its London City-Edinburgh service from six to seven-times daily, and its Manchester-Amsterdam operation will triple from twice to six-times daily.

Flybe's Birmingham services to Amsterdam will increase from four to six-times daily; to Dusseldorf from four to five-times daily; to Edinburgh from seven to eight-times daily; and to Glasgow from seven to eight-times daily.

Its Edinburgh-Belfast City operation will increase from five to six-times daily, while its Glasgow-Belfast City operation will increase from four to six-times daily.

Paul Simmons, Flybe's CCO, said: "To better serve the needs of our customers, the diversity and added frequency to our winter routes demonstrates our commitment in providing unrivalled regional connections and onward seamless travel with codeshare partners to the rest of the world.

"Our 2015/16 winter schedule provides a good selection of choice for those wanting to book affordable business travel."

Earlier this week, Emirates and Flybe announced a codeshare agreement that will see the Gulf airline's EK code added to 25 Flybe routes in the UK (see news, June 10).
