Southampton Airport welcomes Flybe services to Avignon and Toulon
Flybe has launched two summer routes to France from Southampton Airport. The services to Avignon and Toulon are operated with a 78-seater Q400. It comes as Flybe also introduces daily flights to Belfast City.
Dave Pflieger, CEO Flybe, said: “We’re excited to be flying from Southampton with the start of flights to Belfast, as well as seasonal flights to Avignon and Toulon in France. Southampton represents Flybe’s commitment towards connecting regions and people with the places that matter most to them. Southampton will be an important airport for Flybe.”
Chris Tibbett, Head of Airline Relations, Southampton Airport, said: “It was great to see these French regional routes take to the skies this weekend, giving holidaymakers in Hampshire a hassle-free way to reach beautiful southern France, whether for the stunning Mediterranean coastline around Toulon or for the colourful lavender fields of Avignon. With the promise of a crisp glass of Côtes de Provence in the sunshine just a short flight away, we expect flights to be popular this summer. We are also thrilled to see further daily services introduced to Belfast City that will deliver greater choice and convenience for those looking to travel to Northern Ireland’s vibrant capital.”
