Somerset becomes even more well-connected

Somerset has an enviable location, with easy access to London, Birmingham, South Wales and the South West peninsula, making it an extremely attractive place from which to do business.

Its great road and rail networks provide quick and easy access to the rest of the country via five motorway junctions and two major A roads. London and Birmingham are only a couple of hours away, while four international airports and two sea ports nearby ensure that a vast array of international routes is also on offer.

Now a new direct flight route from Exeter International Airport, just over the border in Devon, will provide even more choice for Somerset based business people when it comes to travelling to and from London.

From Monday 27th October, Flybe will start a new three times daily service from Exeter Airport to London City Airport, in the heart of the capital. Fares start from just £34.99 one way, with flight times of around 75 minutes, enabling a full working day to be spent in London.

Exeter Airport has committed to fast-tracking all London City passengers, with a latest check-in time of just 20 minutes before departure (assuming online check-in and cabin baggage only). It is currently investing £400,000 in upgrading its security channels in preparation for the new service.

Flybe is also re-introducing its daily Exeter to Newcastle service from 26th October, and it is adding a fourth weekday flight to its popular Manchester service and a third flight on Sundays from the same date, all of which will provide enhanced regional connectivity and travel options.
