Flybe is to launch double-daily flights between Glasgow and Bournemouth from next year.

From 29 March 2015 Flybe will offer twice-daily flights direct from Glasgow Airport to
Bournemouth, providing Scotland with its only direct link to the south-coast city.


The route is expected to prove popular with both business and leisure passengers travelling between Dorset and Scotland’s largest city.

With the addition of Bournemouth, Flybe now offer 17 direct flights from Glasgow Airport with routes including Belfast, Birmingham, Donegal, East Midlands and Southampton.

Paul Simmons, Flybe’s Chief Commercial Officer, said: “We are pleased to be opening operations at Bournemouth Airport. Bolstering regional connectivity remains our number one aim and serving the Dorset coastline builds on Flybe’s strong regional presence.”

Paul Knight, Managing Director at Bournemouth Airport added: “The whole team at Bournemouth is absolutely delighted to welcome Flybe to the airport. The announcement is a clear indication of Flybe’s confidence and commitment in Bournemouth's standing as a key airport for the South West.

“The new route to Glasgow is perfect for both leisure and business passengers looking to travel to Scotland’s largest city for meetings and short breaks. The new route will also provide excellent onward connections to the rest of the world and I know that the return of the Glasgow route will be welcomed by many travellers wishing to travel north of the border.

"Most importantly this is excellent news for our local tourism industry as the route will attract a significant number of visitors coming into this area on holiday.”

Flybe flights from Glasgow to 17 destinations including Barra, Bournemouth, Islay, Leeds/Bradford and Manchester can be booked now at
