Flybe to boost capacity during British Airways strike


UK's number one domestic airline adds seats at London Gatwick, Southampton, Jersey, Aberdeen and Dusseldorf to keep Britain on the move.



Flybe regularly reviews travel disruption caused by industrial action on all forms of public transport be it trains, ferries or aviation and increases frequency and availability accordingly.


In order to give passengers impacted by the British Airways action a reliable and great value alternative, Flybe can therefore confirm it has increased the number of seats available on a number of our UK and European routes. Specifically, these are London Gatwick to and from Aberdeen, Jersey and Dusseldorf. Additionally, Flybe has upped the number of seats available for purchase from Southampton to a range of destinations to assist BA customers who otherwise might fly from Heathrow or Gatwick.
