Flybe has announced that three routes from Exeter Airport are to be axed amid a wide-ranging review of its operations.

The airline is withdrawing services to Newcastle with effect from March 27 next year, as well as ending its two summer-only services to Barcelona and Nice.

The news came as Flybe unveiled its summer schedule for 2014, confirming it will operate more than 150 routes from 65 UK and European airports between March 30 and October 25.

Passengers affected by the route changes are being contacted and offered an alternative Flybe flight where possible or a full refund on their ticket.

Paul Simmons, Flybe’s chief commercial officer, said: “We have taken a long hard look at all the routes we fly from Exeter to make sure they are what our customers really want and that they operate at the best possible times for everyone.

“The extent of our regional network, with more than 150 routes on sale for next summer means that no other airline has the regional and onward international connectivity offered by Flybe.”
