Flybe, the Europe’s largest regional airline, has recently launched its 2018 summer schedule from Cardiff Airport, featuring 17 routes with a total choice of up to 75 flights a week.
The UK-based airline commenced its summer 2018 schedule with the launch of the first ever service between Cardiff and Venice, with the inaugural flight taking off from Cardiff on March 27.
Venice is Flybe’s fourth Italian route from Cardiff offering twice weekly flights on Tuesdays and Saturdays. The service is also timed to suit the needs of holidaymakers looking for a Mediterranean cruise. The fares start from £29.99.
Roy Kinnear, Flybe’s Chief Commercial Officer, commented: ‘We are delighted to include yet another new route to Italy from our Cardiff base this summer and look forward to welcoming many new passengers on board. We are passionate about connecting people and communities and offering the widest choice of destinations possible with time saving, punctual and affordable travel.’
Deb Barber, Chief Executive Officer of Cardiff Airport, added: ‘The start of Flybe’s new Venice route is a welcome addition to their ever expanding choice of destinations available from Cardiff and to see a busy first flight out is testament to this. What a great way to mark the start of Flybe’s third summer season at Wales’ national airport!’
Eastern Airways and Blue Islands, the franchise partners of Flybe, have also started operating their new summer schedules with four additional routes. The full schedule of services is now available for booking at www.flybe.com.
Flybe has codeshare agreements with several long haul airlines to provide both business and leisure customers with onward connections from Cardiff to destinations across the globe.
