Norwich Airport has added new holiday routes for Winter 2016 with new flights to Malaga and Alicante, plus a new ski flight to Chambery in the French Alps, all of which will be operated by Flybe, the UK-based low-fares airline.
Effective for travel from October 31, Flybe’s new winter schedule at Norwich will see the addition of two scheduled flights a week to both Alicante and Malaga, with a new Saturday service to Chambery commencing mid-December. The new routes are in addition to its recently launched Exeter service through the winter months.
The Chambery link will be the first winter ski flight from Norwich since 2010, adding to the list of holiday destinations. Norwich has also re-launched scheduled sunshine flights to Spain at Easter, following a nine-year absence.
Richard Pace, General Manager at Norwich Airport, said: ‘The partnership between RCA and Flybe means the new sunshine routes will operate year-round and we are delighted to be adding the popular ski resort of Chambery to our winter schedule.
‘With the addition of regular flights to Exeter, Norwich Airport is offering one of its best winter schedules for years.’
Flybe’s chief revenue officer, Vincent Hodder added: ‘Together with our partners at Norwich, Flybe will continue to look at ways to provide an increasing selection of attractive routes for our regional customers.
The diversity of our new winter schedule reinforces this commitment; and we look forward to welcoming many new passengers on board as they head off for winter sun and ski breaks, as well as those who are already enjoying the fast, easy convenience of our recently introduced services to Exeter. As the lowest possible fares sell out quickly, we would advise customers to book as early as possible to avoid disappointment, especially when looking to travel over peak holiday periods.’
The new flights are operated by one of Flybe’s E195 118-seater jet aircraft. Tickets are on sale now at www.flybe.com with one way fares from GBP17.49 including taxes and charges.
Norwich Airport offers direct scheduled flights to Amsterdam (with onward connections to over 600 destinations worldwide), Aberdeen, Alicante, Edinburgh, Exeter, Guernsey, Jersey, Malaga and Manchester. Connections through Manchester enable passengers to reach Belfast, Glasgow, Isle of Man, Inverness, among several other destinations. Holiday flights are also offered to the Balearic and Canary Islands, Cyprus, Turkey, Greece, Bulgaria and Italy.
