Exeter-based Flybe is set to drop three Westcountry routes from its newly-announced summer schedule.

The airline said that its flights from Exeter airport to Newcastle will be withdrawn from March 27, while its summer-only services to Barcelona and Nice from the city will not go ahead in 2014.

It said that passengers affected by the changes are being contacted and offered, where possible, an alternative Flybe flight or a full refund on their ticket.

In total, the airline will operate 17 routes from Exeter in 2014, out of 150 routes it flies between from 65 UK and European airports.

Flybe said its new schedule ‘reaffirms’ its commitment to the regional economies of the UK with a product and an experience that is ‘in tune’ with its customers’ needs.

Flybe’s chief commercial officer Paul Simmons, 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 means that no other airline has the regional and onward international connectivity offered by Flybe.”
