Flybe is to start a new service between London City and Aberdeen from October, filling the gap left by British Airways’ recent exit from the route.
The Exeter-based airline will start twice-daily flights starting from 27 October operated with a Bombardier Q400.
The new service follows BA’s decision to pull out of the market, which it has operated since September 2012, this winter. Innovata schedules show Flybe will become the sole operator on the route. Flybe this autumn is making London City its primary London base.
Flybe will also operate a five times weekly service to Aberdeen from East Midlands this winter, complementing existing flights to the Scottish city from Birmingham, Manchester, Belfast and Leeds Bradford.
Elsewhere the regional airline will start a five times weekly Birmingham-Berlin Tegel route and will resume daily flights between Exeter and Newcastle from 26 October.
