Flybe launches global connection for Liverpool airport

New FlightTravelling Brits will be pleased to hear that the regional carrier Flybe has announced its daily hub connection from Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) to Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport – meaning travellers can now connect to a host of new destinations around the world.

Flybe is set to operate up to three flights every day between Liverpool and Amsterdam – with departures taking place early morning, lunch time and late afternoon.

This will give passengers the opportunity to make long haul connections to the likes of Singapore, Tokyo and Hong Kong at their own convenience.

Re-establishing a hub-link

The airline recently stepped up its services from Liverpool by announcing further routes to Edinburgh which will begin at the end of this October.

Flybe is also set to increase its capacity on the existing flight route to the Isle of Man and Belfast City while also increasing the number of flights to and from Liverpool to 150 per week.

Andrew Cornish, Chie Executive at LJLA, said the re-establishment of a “hub link” has always been in the interest of stakeholders and passengers alike.

These new changes will allow both business and leisure passengers to take advantage of the convenience of these flights and begin long-haul journeys more easily than ever before, he added.

Boosting the regional area

Mr Cornish also explained that this move by Flybe will further boost the region’s tourist offer and future inward investment opportunities.

Paul Simmons, Chief Commercial Officer at Flybe, said the firm is delighted to play a huge role in making it possible for Liverpool travellers to access the world – while also making it of ease for the rest of the world to visit the stunning city of Liverpool.

Even better news for those Brits planning to see the world is that one way fares on Flybe’s new route to Amsterdam start at just £34.99 – including taxes and charges – and are available from March 26th 2016.

If you want to take advantage of this new route, be sure to book your long-haul travel insurance in advance to stay safe whilst away
