Flybe Group PLC (know to us as just Flybe) is a low-cost regional airline with its headquarters at the Jack Walker House at Exeter International Airport in Devon. It operates over 180 routes to 65 European airports and is Europe's largest regional airline, carrying over 6.7 million passengers during 2010.
How to Check In
You can check in online from 36 hours before your flight departs and up to 1 hour before and are able to print out your own boarding pass for travel. There are special Flybe self service kiosks, check in desks and bag drops at the airport terminals for a speedier check-in. For those taking domestic flights with only hand baggage, these kiosks can be used to check-in 20 minutes prior to departure. If you have check-in baggage you can use them 30 minutes before your flight departs. For international flights the timings are 45 minutes with only hand baggage and 60 minutes with check-in bags. If you are unable to check-in online, go to a check-in desk at the airport and the staff there will be happy to assist you.
Baggage Allowance and Fees
As with many low cost carriers, there are strict conditions when it comes to how much luggage you can take on a flight. Always check with the airline before you travel. For up to date information on baggage allowance and charges, go to the Flybe website
As with the majority of budget airlines, food, drinks and duty free are all available to purchase on the flight but are not included as part of the ticket price. You do get a free in-flight magazine to read and a paper bag should turbulence get the better of you, but otherwise, it's best to bring your own means of entertainment.
