Yes, FlyBe flew the Exeter team up to Manchester I seem to remember, when they played Manchester United a while back. Also Air Southwest has flown Plymouth Argyle to a few of their more distant games, and likewise other teams have flown down to Plymouth, that was on Emerald Airways who now seem to be defunct.
