Flybe has been moving quickly since its sale to a Virgin Atlantic-led consortium completed this week.
We have seen the announcement of Heathrow to Guernsey, using the Virgin Atlantic slot previously leased to bankrupt Cobalt Air.
A fifth daily flight to Edinburgh, from 31st March, was announced a few weeks ago. Flybe has now announced plans to add a sixth daily Edinburgh flight from 22nd April. This will operate out of Heathrow Terminal 2.
From Heathrow, there will now be an earlier 06.40 departure to Edinburgh.
Coming back, there is now a later 20.45 departure into Heathrow (22.20 arrival).
Remember that you can still earn Avios on Flybe flights which are flown before 30th April. You can also redeem Avios until 30th April, for flights up to a year ahead. You should be a little wary of making Flybe bookings from November onwards, however, as the airline is likely to see a major shake-up of its timetable from the start of the Winter schedules.
Details of the Flybe / Avios partnership are here.
