Jersey will start in March. Flybe were given a license to operate the route after BA (who also operate JER-SOU) stopped basing a Dash 8 in Jersey over night to cut costs, this meant that early morning travellers who needed to get to SOU, lost their link to the city unless they travelled at 9a.m. when the first BA flight left. I think there may be only one daily flight,however, I could be wrong.

Regards Adrian.

This is the press-release - it does not mention EXE, but gives Brussels, Copenhagen, Lyons, Toulouse, Edinburgh and Glasgow as possible new destinations in the future:

"FlyBE., Europe’s largest independent regional airline, is to establish a key hub at BAA-owned Southampton Airport with the launch of five new scheduled routes from March 2003, the airline announces today (18 December, 2002). The move will create up to 150 jobs in the region and passengers flying from Southampton will be able to benefit with permanently low fares from 29 one way on every route.

From Spring 2003 FlyBE. will launch the following new routes:-
Southampton to Milan Bergamo - daily services
Southampton to Geneva – daily services
Southampton to Dublin – twice daily services
Southampton to Belfast City – twice daily services
Southampton to Jersey – a minimum of three daily services (licence secured last week)

From Winter 2003 Southampton to Barcelona and Nice

FlyBE.’s Southampton services will initially support four aircraft, but the intention is to expand to a 10-strong fleet dedicated to Southampton to further services to Brussels, Copenhagen, Lyons, Toulouse, Edinburgh and Glasgow. “Our aim is to duplicate the strong presence we have at Birmingham at Southampton Airport,” said Jim French. With 10 million people living within 90 minutes of the airport, Southampton Airport is an important gateway to central southern England, conveniently located between the M27 and M3 motorways and with a dedicated rail station adjacent to the passenger terminal.”

The new routes from Southampton will operate with a mixture of BAe 146 and Bombardier Q400 aircraft. “These aircraft are among the most environmentally sensitive aircraft flying today, offering exceptionally low fuel consumption and low noise emissions, which are clearly going to be a major factor in airport operations in the future,” noted French."

So, what routes are they cutting to add this capacity at Southampton?
