Flybe has announced seven new flights from Birmingham, dubbed the ‘Magnificent Seven’.
The new routes include a six-times-a-week service to Florence and daily flights to Cologne.
Flybe will also fly six times a week to Toulouse; five times a week from Birmingham to Alicante and four times a week to Bordeaux, Palma Mallorca and Porto.
To support the new routes Flybe will add three Embraer 175 aircraft at Birmingham Airport, meaning a total of 12 will be at the base.
“Our decision to support the region by basing an extra three aircraft here is not only a vote of confidence in the local economy but also in the strong relationship we have built with the airport team,” said Paul Simmons, chief commercial officer at Flybe.
Once the routes start on 10 April and 13 May, Flybe will have 32 routes to and from Birmingham for the summer.
