Flybe is to launch a new route from London Heathrow to Guernsey.
The new daily service launches on Sunday 31 March 2019. It will initially operate daily and for the summer season only. However, this may be extended.
Whilst the timings and frequencies are not ideal for long-haul connections at Heathrow, it is a better option than having to traverse across London to take a connecting flight at Gatwick.
Whilst this announcement has been made before the Connect Airways consortium has purchased Flybe, it does give an indication of what may be to come if the transaction completes tomorrow, Friday 22 February.
It is plausible that the slots of this route have been sourced from Virgin Atlantic’s own portfolio, which have previously been leased to other airlines.
