Christmas Getaway Underway

Exeter Airport is anticipating that more travellers will be visiting family and friends this Christmas than at any other time of the year.

Over the festive period the airport will handle over 20,000 passengers with many departing on Flybe’s domestic flights to Edinburgh and Glasgow, Belfast and Dublin, Manchester, Newcastle and London City and a similar number will be inbound to the South West before the return journeys in the New Year. 

TUI will have the only departure on Christmas day, to Tenerife, so passengers should arrive in the Canaries in time for their Turkey dinner.  Other holiday destinations on offer are to Alicante, Malaga and Malta with Ryanair. 

Christmas jumpers for the staff

The recent flights to Lapland were a real treat for little ones visiting Santa and staff have been in their Christmas jumpers to get everyone in the festive mood.

Skiers will have also welcomed the early snowfalls in the Alps as they head off to Geneva and Chambery.

Matt Roach, Exeter Airport’s managing director said: “More people are choosing to fly at this time of year with flights from Exeter Airport providing a convenient, competitively priced method of travel, particularly at a time when the roads will see such a heavy volume of traffic”.
