Interesting quote:

"All four new routes to Jersey - from Dundee, Inverness, Humberside and Manston in Kent - have been launched in partnership with Jersey-based C. I. Travel Group who had previously operated the routes as exclusive charter flights. All routes will operate once a week, on Saturdays.

The majority of seats on each route will be sold by C. I. Travel Group as part of its tour operation to the Channel Islands through well-established holiday brands including Airways Holidays, Discover Jersey & Lewis’s; the remaining seats being sold direct to travellers by Flybe".

So they're not really new routes at all - just BE taking advantage of axed charter flights!

Quoting Sam1987 (Reply 1):

I wouldnt say axed, HUY-JER was previously on sale for next summer as a charter. I suspect BE have won the charter contract from VLM, the previous operator. Considering the capacity increase from a Fokker 50 to a Dash 8 Q400, Flybe have decided to sell the extra capacity themselves. Either way though a glorified charter flight. Allows Flybe to boast about 4 extra destinations from Jersey, and an extra two regional airports (HUY and MSE - they have other services at INV and Loganair are at DND as a BE franchise) being in their network

BE have also announced JER-LTN today, after Easyjet dropped it. Flybe have served the route on Saturdays only in the past
