NEWS 05/03/15: Flybe announce new routes from Cardiff Airport
Europe’s largest regional airline, Flybe, has announced it is to create a new base at Cardiff Airport this summer in a move which will see 11 routes, 50 new jobs created and over half a million extra seats on sale from Wales’ national airport.
The new network includes flights to existing routes between Cardiff and Belfast, Düsseldorf and Jersey, plus new routes between Cardiff and Cork, Dublin, Edinburgh, Faro, Glasgow, Munich, Milan and Paris.
Seats will go on sale on Friday 6th March at www.flybe.com, with fares available from £24.99 one way.
Two of the airline’s 118-seat Embraer 195 aircraft will be based at the Airport: the first from 1 June 2015, the second arriving on 1 September 2015. Jobs will include flight crew and ground handling staff.
The announcement follows the signing of a 10-year long-term agreement between Flybe and Cardiff Airport.
