Flybe’s new Bournemouth base

Too scared to cut this fantastic cake celebrating the launch of Flybe’s new Bournemouth base are: Bournemouth Airport MD Paul Knight; Flybe CEO Saad Hammad; and Flybe Regional General Manager Paul Willoughby.

Commemorating the launch of the new service between Southampton and Milan Malpensa with this Milan catwalk inspired cake are: Dave Lees, MD, Southampton Airport; Saad Hammad, CEO, Flybe; along with Flybe crew members.

  • Flybe launched services on 18 May from its new Bournemouth (BOH) base to five of its nine new destinations from the airport, adding to the Glasgow service that launched on 30 March. The new base will initially operate with two Q400s operating a total of 53 weekly flights to Amsterdam (AMS), Biarritz (BIQ), Deauville (DOL), Dublin (DUB), Jersey (JER), Manchester (MAN), Paris CDG (CDG) and Toulon Hyères (TLN). Commenting on the new route launches Flybe CEO, Saad Hammad, said: “The opening of our new Bournemouth base marks yet another important milestone for Flybe. It enhances and extends our already established presence along the South Coast and is set to play a key role in growing and expanding further our regional connectivity”. The news follows the launch of two other services by carrier this week from Southampton (SOU) to Milan Malpensa (MXP) and London Stansted (STN) to Newquay (NQY). Commenting on the new route from Southampton, Flybe CCO Paul Simmons said: “We’re excited to be celebrating our brand new service to Milan and we’re looking forward to welcoming our passengers on-board. It is a very appealing route and will give our passengers the opportunity to visit and explore one of Europe’s most fashionable and ‘must-see’ cities.”
