Flybe launching two new routes between Scotland and HeathrowStaff Writer | December 21, 2016
Flybe is heading to London Heathrow for the first time next year to connect the UK's largest international airport with Scotland.
Air traffic Flybe is not required to pay to use the slots
Flybe will operate the slots which became available as a result of commitments required by the European Commission following the acquisition of BMI by International Consolidated Airlines Group.
Flybe is not required to pay to use the slots, other than to meet Heathrow landing and passenger charges. The slots will not be purchased by Flybe and will therefore not be brought onto the balance sheet.
Flybe will be using Heathrow's Terminal 2 and will offer 'One Stop to the World' connectivity to its codeshare and interline partners. Flights have been conveniently timed for both business and leisure travel, and fares are from £39.99 one way including taxes and charges.
This route expansion means that, with effect from 26th March 2017, Flybe will offer up to 18 flights a day between London and Edinburgh, and 10 between London and Aberdeen. ■
