Operations Update

UKV1212 - Adam Hillier

There are some new exciting changes just around the corner at Fly UK! As the Summer months draw upon us we'd like to let you know about a few operational changes and a series of route expansions that will give you even more choice.

Codeshare Status:


It has been 6 months since we started our historic codeshare agreement with MetroAir, we're not quite sure where the time has gone; what we do know however, is that the agreement has been incredibly popular for both groups of pilots. With that in mind, we're pleased to announce that the codeshare agreement will continue. This continuation has seen the introduction of some new flights from a variety of MetroAir bases. The Embraer fans amongst us will also be pleased to hear that a selection of E170 flights have been added to our selection.

So what can you expect from our continued partnership with MetroAir? As previously stated, we have introduced the Embraer into the schedules, increased the number of daily Dash 8 Q400 flights and built on the already existing Airbus A319 flights, this will lead to a selection of flights available from a variety of Metro's hubs and focus cities including flights to Detroit, Tampa, Charlotte, Sint Maarten and Honolulu but to name a few. We also have access to flights in the new Airbus A330-300! 

The new codeshare schedule will be available from the 1st June.


Highland Connection Update:


We're taking the connection out of the Highlands this Summer as we're pleased to announce that Highland Connection (operated by Fly UK) has been awarded a contract by the Scilly Islands Travel Commission to operate flights on their behalf for the upcoming busy tourist season.

We will be basing a single Twin Otter on the island of St Mary's until the 31st October. Until that point, the aircraft will operate numerous daily flights between the island and the mainland. Destinations include, Lands End, Newquay, Exeter and Bristol. 

Normal Highland Connect schedules will not be affected. These flights will be available from the 1st June.
