Flights from Birmingham to Aberdeen will prove popular for customers who want a day trip to the Scottish city. The 90-minute flights depart Birmingham at 6:50 am and 18:45 and return to Birmingham after a half-hour turnaround making an easy day trip to Aberdeen.

Christopher Tibbett, group head of airline relations and marketing for Aberdeen International Airport, spoke of his excitement about the Birmingham-Aberdeen route. He said: “Birmingham is one of Aberdeen’s most popular destinations. This up-to-double-daily service will deliver even greater choice and convenience for our passengers.”

The existing summer schedule between Brest and Avignon will continue. The flights from Birmingham to both destinations will run weekly until 25th July and twice weekly until 9th September.

Flybe will also launch flights to the popular French town of Bergerac on 3rd June. The flights will operate twice weekly on Saturday and Sunday until 24th July.

The new summer schedule from Flybe for the upcoming season has produced a positive response. Flybe CEO, Dave Pflieger, said: “Our entire team is thrilled to be starting our second year of operations with this greatly enhanced summer schedule. We plan to provide not only great everyday value-for-money but also better-than-ever flight options across the UK, over to Amsterdam, and south to popular holiday spots in France.”

He also highlighted the airline’s onboard food and drink offering: “In addition to providing more great flights and outstanding customer service, we also look forward to providing our ever-popular complimentary offerings of tea, coffee, juice, and biscuits to all who fly with us.”
