Air France commercial partnership with Flybe: 45 new routes


Starting this autumn, Air France customers will have access to 45 new routes between France and the UK and 17 routes on Flybe's domestic network, via Birmingham, Manchester and Southampton, thanks to a new commercial pertnership announced today by both airlines.


This partnership will lead to a code-share agreement between Air France and Flybe, which should come into effect at the end of October 2010.


There will be better links between the French regions and the UK with, for example, non-stop flights between:

This agreement also adds new destinations on departure from Paris-Charles de Gaulle to Belfast, Cardiff, Exeter, Glasgow and Jersey.


Millions of Flybe customers will have access to Air France's vast global network, via the Paris-Charles de Gaulle hub.


Air France will be strengthening its presence in the UK, the number one market in Europe, by offering code-share flights with Flybe, the UK's number one domestic airline.
