“We have worked extremely closely with the Flybe team to ensure that the route network meets the needs of the region.

“There is a clear message in this that local people want to fly from their local airport and not have to trek to Heathrow or across the Pennines in needless car or train journeys.

“Regional airports are vital to the economic prosperity of city regions and we welcome Flybe’s massive investment into the region.”

Phil Delaney, sales and distribution director, for Flybe, added: “We are confident we have created a schedule that delivers attractive travel options that are both appealing and affordable for Summer 2016 as well as providing opportunities for onward global connections.”
