Andrew Strong, Flybe UK MD, comments: “We have been working hard over the past few days to do everything possible within the confines of our already extensive summer schedule to ensure that those passengers wanting to travel from East Midlands Airport to these key destinations are not left completely stranded following bmibaby’s surprise announcement last week that it will cease flying these key routes in June.

“We know that many passengers rely on the airport for their regional travel and we’re pleased to start releasing some of the routes for sale to give them peace of mind on these three routes with the increased frequency on our Belfast City service and a choice of up to 36 flights a week to Edinburgh and Glasgow from September. We expect to be able to put more routes on sale in the coming days and continue to work with the relevant airports.”
