Flybe, a European regional airline based in the UK, has announced the first phase of its 2017/18 Winter programme from Cardiff Airport, featuring 14 routes including a range of ski and winter sun routes.
Flybe’s first phase Winter 2017/18 schedule from Cardiff will operate up to 68 flights a week on 14 routes including a new weekly service to Rome, carried over from the summer and operating for the first time in winter. The airline has also announced extra services to Cork and Jersey, increasing to three times a week, while flights to Glasgow will increase to six times a week. The increase in the number of flights to Jersey follows customer demand as visitors to Wales from the Channel Islands has increased.
