Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline, will this Bank Holiday Monday (31st August 2015) celebrate the start of a new year-round route between Cardiff and Munich as well as an extra 22 flights being added to seven of its existing key routes as a result of the arrival of its second 118-seat Embraer 195 jet aircraft to be based at the Airport. To mark the occasion, a lively and colourful German themed experience is being planned for passengers to enjoy after checking in.
The new flights to and from Munich will operate Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturdays, with one way fares available from £44.99 each way including taxes and charges.
