Flybe, Europe's largest regional airline and the largest scheduled carrier at Southampton, has today (23rd February 2016) confirmed details of its new affordable, year round daily flights between Southampton and Munich that offer a flight time of just 2hr 20m. Tickets are from £29.99 one way including taxes and charges and, effective for travel from 29th June, available for booking now at www.flybe.com.
Munich is one of Germany’s main commercial and industrial centres, famed for its Oktoberfest and Christmas markets, and so the route is expected to prove popular with both business and leisure travellers alike.
