BRITISH airline Flybe will cease flights to Spain and Portugal from Exeter Airport as of September 30.

British holidaymakers from the westcountry will be no longer be able to fly to Alicante, Faro, Palma and Malaga.

Exeter Airport’s managing director Matt Roach, said: “While it is always disappointing to lose flights, unfortunately these routes no longer fit into the Flybe operating model.”

However, there may be hope for next year. A spokeswoman for Flybe affirmed that 2015 Summer Sun schedules are still to be finalised.

  1. I think it’s not a “lack of funds” but instead perhaps a seasonal decision on the part of flybe or perhaps that their aircraft can be better used on other routes. They have just started flights to Berlin and Amsterdam from Birmingham and Manchester, while they are also launching a number of flights from London City. Their last financial results were good.

  2. it is ridiculous. People living in Devon and Cornwall ( a massive catchment area) now have to travel to Bristol if they wish to fly to Malaga or Alicante, surely those two destinations are massively popular, especially in the summer months. Please reconsider, Flybe or let Ryanair step in!
