New, daily codeshare flights to operate from 26 March
From today (Monday, 9 January), Scottish travellers will be able to book tickets to travel from Edinburgh and Aberdeen with Flybe, and connect onto Virgin Atlantic flights at London Heathrow to international destinations including Johannesburg, Los Angeles, Boston, Seattle, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Dubai.
The two airlines have extended their codeshare agreement to include London Heathrow while new Flybe flights from the two Scottish cities will connect customers onto Virgin Atlantic flights to the US, Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
The new Flybe codeshare flights to London Heathrow will operate from 26 March – offering four services per day from Edinburgh Airport, and up to three services per day from Aberdeen Airport.
The agreement will mean customers can seamlessly connect between Flybe and Virgin Atlantic with a single check in and bag drop. It will also open up a number of new destinations for Scottish travellers, and help boost inbound tourism and investment.
