The announcement has been welcomed by Patrick Burrows, CFO of London City Airport, who adds:

“Amsterdam is one of our busiest routes and Flybe’s new weekend flights will offer additional flexibility for passengers, particularly leisure travellers looking for a weekend city break.  We welcome today’s announcement which complements the exciting domestic network that Flybe is creating from London City, growing much-needed air connectivity to the UK’s regions.”
