Default Flybe cancel Exeter to Palma route

As from the end of September Flybe are no longer flying to Palma, Alicante or Malaga from Exeter. They have also cancelled Spanish routes from Southampton. They made no announcement, just a sneaky little mention on the web page I discovered by accident.
Such a shame for residents of Cornwall and Devon.

T'other half will be disappointed, means we will have to resort to "Cheap Flights" from Bournemouth. Oh well another excuse to show this Cheap Flights with subtitles - YouTube

There were rumors a while ago that flybe were having financial difficulties, this could possibly be evidence of that. Lets hope someone takes them on as we need a bit of competition down here to keep prices lower!

It is a shame. They have always treated us well, especially when we had a wedding dress to carry on board. Could not speak higher of flybe for their service over the years, we always tried to book with them first.

Yep!!! and with most flights from Bristol being early morning it will mean either a sleepless night or an overnight stay .
Yet another example of the assumption that England ends at Bristol .

Default fly be

Sad news for us as we are only 4 miles from Exeter airport. It will be a great loss to the West country especially losing that lovely aircraft which Lola ,who hates flying, really has grown to feel comfortable in. Lets hope another carrier will pick up the routes and fly from Exeter.
