Fly UK Regional - Plymouth Here We Come!


Following recent rumours regarding a new regional base, Fly UK is pleased to announce Plymouth as our new home in the South-West of England.

Operations from Plymouth City Airport will commence on Friday 7th November. We are basing 2 brand new Dash8-Q400 aircraft at Plymouth (G-FLHA & G-FLHB) which are being delivered fresh from the Bombardier factory in Toronto, Canada.

Robert Allen, Operations manager at Fly UK comments:

"A few months ago, Fly UK ran a regional operations development group which involved members and managers exploring the current Fly UK regional network. By working together, we highlighted a number of improvements and changes. One of the ideas put forward was for a stronger presence in the South West, we considered a number of different bases and settled on Plymouth as a new base. This expansion adds more route choice for pilots who fly the Dash8-Q400, more choice of routes departing the South West, and more choice of multi leg regional routes."

As part of Fly UK's review of our regional operations, we are also pleased to launch revised schedules for our turboprop regional aircraft operating from our Leeds Bradford and Glasgow bases.

New destinations from Leeds Bradford include Norwich, Exeter, and Aberdeen. New destinations from Glasgow include Stornoway, Sumburgh and Cork. You will also find increased frequency on various services operated from Glasgow and Leeds Bradford.

The next phase of our regional operations review is currently in progress, and we are looking at the remainder of our regional routes, operated by our regional jet aircraft such as the Fokker 100 and Embraer 170. Further details will be released when revised schedules and destinations are ready to go.
