    Summer 2019 Flybe schedule announced
    18 routes and up to 89 flights a week

    Flybe has confirmed the continuation of its four summer sun routes with multi-frequency weekly services to Alicante, Faro, Malaga and Palma de Mallorca for Summer 2019 from Exeter Airport.

    The flights will operate for the entire period of the 2019 summer schedule between 31 March and Saturday 26 October. Seats can be booked from Thursday 16 August 2018 on flights up to 16 June 2019. However, bookings for flights after 16 June 2019 will be open later.

    Exeter Airport’s Managing Director, Matt Roach said: “Flybe’s commitment to these routes, which have operated year-round for the past few seasons, is great news. With seats going on sale our South West passengers can book flights for next summer to Spain and Portugal and enjoy the convenience of departing from their local airport.”

    In total, Flybe’s Summer programme from Exeter features 18 routes with a total choice of up to 89 flights a week across the UK and regional mainland Europe.

    Highlights of Flybe’s 2019 Summer routes from Exeter include:

    • Alicante (Tues/Wed/Fri/Sun)
    • Faro (Wed/Sat)
    • Malaga (Mon/Thur)
    • Palma de Mallorca (Wed/Sat/Sun)
    • Paris Charles De Gaulle (daily)
    • Amsterdam (daily)
    • Dublin (daily)
    Plus four flights a week to Norwich and the extension of winter ski service to Geneva through to end April.

    Full details of Flybe’s 2019 Summer schedule are available at flybe.com

    Roy Kinnear, Flybe’s Chief Commercial Officer comments: “We look forward to welcoming many new customers on board next summer and hope that by putting these flights on sale now it will allow them the opportunity to plan their next summer travel early to take advantage of the lowest possible fares.”

    Routes already on sale include the popular daily flights to London City, and three times a day service to the Manchester hub airport which gives plenty of opportunities for convenient onward connections.

    As Europe’s largest regional airline Flybe offers many connections with the airline’s own
    services and onward flights with airline partners to a large selection of global destinations from Manchester and other international airport hubs.

    Check out all the connectivity options for seamless onward travel at the ‘One Stop to the World’ link at onestop.flybe.com then book direct with the onward airline or through a local travel agent.

    I wonder why they have shown the Norwich flights as 'plus'. They are operating this summer.

    Good news nevertheless that Flybe has maintained its commitment to the sun routes. A year or two ago they looked in doubt. Whether Flybe's latest strategy of returning to its core values will eventually see the elimination of sun routes remains to be seen. There is no mention of any new routes which is a bit disappointing.

    Makes it sound like Flybe have added extra when in reality it's the same as last year.
    Also in a way can the sun routes from airports like EXT be counted as it's core values because providing services like that from small airports like Exeter and Southampton and Cardiff is more of guarenteed market for them and i'd say fits into them as airline being the airline that serves the small regional airports.

    Apparently Flybe will base a 4th Dash 8 for the winter increasing CDG to 2 daily AMS to 11 weekly and MAN to 4 daily.

    There is now a piece in the local rag.

    https://www.devonlive.com/news/business/exeter-airport-now-extra-flights-1896080

    I find Paris CDG interesting. I've not looked at the timings but if they provide the opportunity for a day's work at either end they might nick a few passengers from the southern part of the Bristol catchment. easyJet stubbornly persists with its single daily service despite selling out regularly and flybmi, although scheduling up to 3 rotations on some days, can be so unreliable with almost daily cancellations on its BRS network that if I was travelling to Paris I would not risk them. I can't be alone in this.

    Had a quick look at the times and the morning departure from EXT is 06.30 and the evening departure from CDG is 18.00 and I'd imagine that the Air France codeshare is in effect so it shouid increase connectivity as well!
