Councillor Phil Bateman said today ” I think you all will recognise that I believe that Birmingham International Airport is very much part of the economic development of Wolverhampton. It is very much the start and finish of many international and domestic trips for Wolverhampton’s business community and the goods that they produce for export. So I am pleased to bring readers yet more news of flights from our Local Airport. An Airport that the City of Wolverhampton has a share of ownership. I am pleased that Flybe has expanded their network for this coming year, and I wish them well in all their network of flights.”
Flybe has launched its new summer schedule from Birmingham Airport featuring 26 routes, two of which are new routes to Rotterdam and Knock.
The regional airline stated the summer programme has ‘a special focus on enhancing regional services for its time-sensitive business customers’.
Rotterdam is an important commercial hub and, with a renowned maritime heritage, is also Europe’s largest cargo port, providing a major boost for exporters.
The daily flights between Birmingham and Ireland West Airport Knock will also provide vital connectivity from the region to Ireland.
Paul Simmons, Flybe’s chief commercial officer, said: “We’re excited to confirm our new schedule from Birmingham Airport. We are confident we have created a schedule that delivers travel options that are both appealing and affordable for summer 2016.
“We look forward to our expanded operations taking off from Birmingham and to welcoming all our new passengers on board next summer.”
With a total choice of up to 396 flights a week, tickets are available for booking now via the Flybe website.
