Flybe continues to grow in Scotland
Flybe has said that, despite the current challenges facing the aviation industry, it is continuing to build a bigger and stronger airline allowing it opportunities to develop routes and continue to grow in Scotland.
A spokesman for the regional low cost airline said that it is the fastest growing carrier in Scotland and, as a key contributor to the economy, operates three times more UK domestic flights than any other airline.
Flybe is operating in Scotland with a greater capacity than ever before. Last year, it flew almost 2 million passengers to and from Scotland on some 728 weekly flights and 21 domestic and European routes from Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness.
Earlier this year, the airline signed a ground-breaking agreement with Loganair that created the first ever franchise for a low cost carrier. Operations under the agreement will start from the winter season on October 26, with tickets coming on sale for the full range of services selling under the Flybe brand soon.
Mike Rutter, Flybe’s Chief Commercial Officer, said: ‘What is especially good about the franchise deal is that it has given us the opportunity to further strengthen our Scottish ties. It will greatly benefit both Flybe and Loganair customers by offering an expanded, efficient and friendly service at an outstanding value to a greater range of destinations.'
