Mike Rutter, Flybe's chief commercial officer, said: "In an environment in which other airlines are withdrawing services, we're delighted to be offering close to 4,000 summer flights a week that include the operation of another 16 brand new routes. We are committed to ensuring that Flybe offers an extensive range of affordable quality flights to the widest possible range of attractive destinations.
"With people already planning next year's holidays and wanting their budgets go as far as possible, it's advisable to book early and take advantage of the lowest possible fares."
Flybe's other brand new summer routes also now on sale serve the German city of Hannover from Exeter - with a through running service via Newcastle - and Newcastle direct; and a Bristol to the Isle of Man service.
