Roy Kinnear, Flybe’s Chief Commercial Officer says: “Our 2019/20 Winter schedule has been planned to provide reliable and affordable travel for both business and leisure customers. Our regional network offers lots of opportunity for making onward connections with our codeshare partners and others at key hub airports. This makes it easy for our customers to travel to and from Cardiff from an airport close to where they live, saving valuable time, effort and money.”
CEO of Cardiff Airport, Deb Barber, added: “We have been working very closely with Flybe since the airline announced its plan to restructure and reduce its jet operations across several of its bases."
“The release of the Cardiff schedule for the 2019/20 Winter season is a positive reflection of the airline’s commitment to Wales, offering choice and providing good connectivity within the UK, Ireland and France.
“Core routes to Dublin, Edinburgh, Belfast and Paris will continue to operate as will regular flights to Cork, Jersey and ski flights to Geneva and Chambery*. These services are fundamental to ensuring travellers can travel into and out of Cardiff as a gateway to the region, whether it is for business, leisure or education.”
