Passengers are set to benefit from more choice on flights between London and Scotland as Flybe’s new flights from Edinburgh and Aberdeen touch down at Heathrow this week.
In a milestone for Heathrow, Flybe – Europe’s largest regional airline – has become the first domestic carrier to begin operating at the UK’s hub since 2013. The move follows Heathrow’s introduction of a £10 reduction in domestic passenger charges in January as an effort to boost domestic connections at the airport.
With up to four daily services to Edinburgh and three to Aberdeen starting from just £29.99/£34.99 one-way, the new Flybe flights open up a huge network of onward global connections for travellers from Scotland as well as making it easier for inbound tourists and investors to visit Scotland’s capital and the Granite City. Flybe services operate from Heathrow’s award-winning Terminal 2: The Queen’s Terminal providing passengers with convenient connections onto Star Alliance’s network of 44 global destinations served directly from Heathrow, as well as convenient transfers onto flights from Flybe’s codeshare partners Emirates, Virgin, Etihad and Singapore Airlines in the nearby Terminal 3.
