Flybe's new winter schedule sees return of popular Exeter route from Newcastle

A daily service to Exeter Airport from Newcastle is set to be reintroduced by Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline, as its 2014-15 winter schedule gets underway on Sunday 26th October.

It joins existing routes from Newcastle to George Best Belfast City and Southampton offering a choice of up to 64 flights a week with one way fares from £27.99 including taxes and charges.

Paul Simmons, Flybe’s Chief Commercial Officer, comments: “The diversity of our winter network this year is greatly expanded with the new routes we have added. Regional connectivity is Flybe’s mission and, due to public demand, we are pleased to again offer our Newcastle customers daily flights to Exeter.”

Flybe is always looking at ways to provide improved benefits for its customers and the start of the winter schedule also sees the airline welcome Avios on board with a new travel rewards programme, and Spend & Fly, a simpler way to earn flights with Flybe’s credit card.  There is also a new secure onsite parking option offered at most of the UK airports from which it operates when making an online booking-  and it will always be the closest available possible to the terminal.

Chris Sanders, Aviation Development Director at Newcastle International Airport, said: “We’re delighted that Flybe has reintroduced the Exeter service from Newcastle. The route is important for both leisure and business passengers wishing to visit the South West as well as the city of Exeter itself.

“The South West is home to stunning scenery, beautiful beaches and cultural attractions.  Within easy reach you have the Jurassic coastline, Dartmoor, Exmoor, the South and North Devon coasts as well as the whole of Cornwall.  There is plenty to do year round and flying there is now so easy. ”

Adds Mr Simmons: “Providing an extensive choice of routes for customers whose travel plans are time-critical is what Flybe is all about. We look forward to welcoming all our Newcastle passengers on board this winter so they can experience for themselves ‘the fastest way from A to Flybe!”
