Flybe offers alternative to Heathrow

Flybe will offer five new routes from East Midlands next winter, flying to Amsterdam, Paris CDG, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Jersey and basing two aircraft at the airport for the first time.


It said today it was still finalising schedules and frequencies with the airport for travel from October 28 to March 30.


Flybe said the new routes to Amsterdam and Paris CDG would plug into international flights from the major hubs, providing passengers based in the East Midlands with an alternative to London Heathrow.
