Flybe, Europe’s largest and most successful regional airline, has boosted its services between Birmingham and Edinburgh and Glasgow airports with four additional flights a day providing its customers with a true shuttle service with a total choice of up to eight flights a day on each route from September 9th. Seats are available for booking now at www.flybe.com with one way fares from £29.99 including taxes and charges.
Business travellers in particular will benefit from the added choice and flexibility that Flybe’s high-frequency services now offer: for example, there are three conveniently timed weekday flights leaving Edinburgh for Birmingham before 0900; whilst northbound they have the choice of up to four weekday flights leaving Birmingham after 1600. Likewise, with up to 30% more seats available on these enhanced routes, leisure travellers have an even greater choice of affordable flights.
The additional flights on these popular routes have been scheduled to satisfy public demand and, with the majority to be operated by Flybe’s comfortable 2x2 seat Embraer jet aircraft, are another example of Flybe’s long-standing commitment to both Scotland and Birmingham.
William Pearson, Aviation Development Director at Birmingham Airport, said: “These additional flights to Edinburgh and Glasgow is great news for business and leisure passengers, who are set to benefit from greater choice and increased connectivity. We’re sure this latest route announcement will also be welcomed by those wanting to visit friends and relatives in both Birmingham and Scotland. We’re delighted with Flybe’s decision to increase flights to these popular destinations, which clearly demonstrates their commitment to Birmingham and the wider region.”
