Flybe has signed a five-year agreement with London City Airport (LCY) to commence domestic and international operations to/from London City with effect from October 27, with routes now on sale.
The carrier will deploy five growth aircraft for its LCY operation which will be based at three of its regional bases, and are expected to fly up to circa 500,000 passengers annually on a schedule that will see four times daily services from/to Edinburgh and Dublin, three times daily services from/to Belfast and Exeter and twice daily from/to Inverness.
The new routes will boost connectivity from the UK regions to London, providing direct links for customers in the regions to the heart of London’s financial district. The airline expects that the new routes will also appeal to a significant number of City and Canary Wharf-based passengers who need to access the UK regions and neighbouring European destinations quickly and efficiently.
Regional core services within the UK and from/to Ireland will be supplemented with off-peak leisure flights to selected ski, regional French and Northern Spanish destinations.
Flights between LCY and Edinburgh, Belfast City, Dublin, Inverness and Exeter are now on sale at www.flybe.com
