Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline, celebrated its second anniversary at London City Airport with the start of its 2016-17 Winter schedule, which features eight routes, including a brand new service to Dusseldorf and in total offering a choice of up to 110 flights a week for travel through to 25th March 2017.

Dusseldorf flights operate up to three times a day Mondays – Fridays and once a day at weekends. The city is not only famed for its art and fashion industry but is also a key banking and telecommunications center, making it the destination of choice for both business and leisure travelers alike. Providing an additional benefit is Flybe’s codeshare agreement with air berlin meaning that customers can benefit from seamless and affordable onward connections to long-haul routes at Dusseldorf.

Other highlights of Flybe’s new winter schedule includes the extension of the airline’s popular multi-daily flights to Cardiff and those to Paris Charles De Gaulle operating for the first time this winter. Flybe also operates multi-frequency flights from London City to Aberdeen, Amsterdam, Belfast City, Edinburgh and Exeter.

Vincent Hodder, Flybe’s Chief Revenue Officer, said: “We are delighted to be celebrating our second year at London City Airport and to add yet another brand new route to our expanding schedule. Our winter programmer marks Flybe’s commitment to providing convenient connections for business and leisure travelers from regional markets to and from the heart of London. They provide added opportunity for customers to travel to the broadest range of destinations from their local airport.”

Matthew Hall, Chief Commercial Officer at London City Airport, added: “In just two years Flybe has cemented itself as a favorite airline for many London City passengers and continues to be an important partner of the airport. The airline offers several popular routes – both domestic and European – which help keep business professionals connected to the capital, with the airport’s advantage of close proximity to central London.

“The introduction of a Flybe Dusseldorf service adds flexibility and choice for passengers travelling between the UK capital and this major German city, known as much for its vibrant culture as its status as a global business and financial center.” Read more
