New leisure hub opens up eight regional connections to France and Italy

Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline, has started operating eight new routes to regional France and Italy from Exeter Airport via its new weekend leisure hub at Southampton. The seasonal flights operate each weekend through to 3rd September 2017 as part of the airline’s 2017 Summer schedule

Operating on Saturdays throughout the summer, the majority of routes are brand new services to some of Europe’s most sought-after holiday destinations - Avignon, Bordeaux, La Rochelle, Limoges, Nantes, Perpignan-Rivesaltes, Toulon-Hyères and Verona.

Flybe’s weekend leisure hub not only gives regional passengers the added benefits of extra choice but also the opportunity to seamlessly connect through Southampton to their final destination with the minimum of fuss and with just one initial check-in at Exeter Airport.

The airline’s schedule is tailored to ensure that the connecting time at Southampton is kept to an absolute minimum and, from wheels up to touchdown, passengers will reach their final destination within a few hours. For example, a flight departing Exeter for Verona at 13:50 on Saturday will connect through Southampton to arrive just under four hours later.

Vincent Hodder, Flybe’s Chief Revenue Officer comments: “We are delighted to introduce the new Southampton leisure hub to our Exeter based passengers this summer. It further enhances the ever growing number of connections available to our customers wanting to enjoy fast, convenient travel farther afield from their local airport.”
