The service to Paris Charles de Gaulle will continue to operate daily with the flight times now operating earlier in the day, improving Air France connectivity for passengers travelling onward and to allow families longer trips in Disneyland Paris.

Other destinations available on the Flybe network from Cardiff include Glasgow, which increases to 11 flights per week this winter, meaning Welsh business passengers have even more day return options from Cardiff; year-round flights to Faro in Portugal will continue as will routes to Munich, Milan, Edinburgh and Belfast City among a number of others.

To better serve its business passengers, the schedule includes improved connectivity between the UK regions, meaning that with a choice of convenient flight times, customers can travel the length and breadth of the country faster than by road or rail.

“The diversity of our winter schedule is ideal for those not only  wanting to book affordable business travel but also winter sun and short leisure breaks, especially over the autumn half-term and Christmas/New Year period.  Flybe offers our customers affordable, convenient, high frequency air travel; ‘Faster than road or rail!”
