About FlyBe

Flybe was founded in 1979 and flies to a number of popular destinations across Europe. It came into existence after Intra Airways merged with Express Air Services. The company specialises in British domestic flights, although it does operate international flights as well. Flybe's Exeter headquarters are backed up by its main centres of operation in Manchester and Birmingham as well as its smaller hubs in Glasgow, Southampton, Edinburgh, Exeter, Doncaster, Cardiff, Inverness, Jersey, Hanover, London, Belfast and Aberdeen.

Top destinations include flights to Birmingham, Newquay and Exeter. Flybe's Belfast route is also popular. The airline owns 76 airplanes, a mixture of Embraer, ATR and Bombardier models. The most numerous aircraft in the fleet is the Bombardier Dash 8 Q400. Although it has not joined any airline association, the company does have codeshares in operation with the following airlines: KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Finnair, Emirates, Etihad, Aer Lingus, Air India, Cathay Pacific, British Airways, Virgin Atlantic and Air France.

Online check-in

Online check-in opens 36 hours before the scheduled takeoff of Flybe flights. It closes again 2 hours before takeoff. Using their booking number, passengers can check in via a web or mobile browser to print off their boarding card. Passengers with Get More and All In tickets can select their seats. Passengers with Just Fly tickets will have to pay extra if they want to choose a seat. If they decide not to, a seat will automatically be chosen for them during check-in. If passengers prefer not to check in online, they can do so at the airport instead, where check-in desks and self-service kiosks will be available for this purpose.

Hand luggage allowance

1 bag of no larger than 55 x 35 x 20 cm (including handles, wheels and any other protrusions) and 1 personal item is allowed as hand luggage for each person on a Flybe flight. Combined, the 2 items should not weigh more than 10 kg. The personal item must be small enough to fit underneath the seat in front of the passenger. Common examples of acceptable personal items are laptop bags, camera cases or handbags. Any luggage that exceeds these limitations, either in size or in weight, will be checked into the hold, which the passenger will then have to pay for.

Checked baggage allowance

Passengers on Flybe flights will have their baggage allowance determined by their ticket type. There is no checked baggage allowance included with the Just Fly fare, but many passengers find this suitable for the short-haul nature of many destinations. The airline's other fare types, Get More and All In, include a checked baggage allowance of 1 bag of no more than 20 kg in weight for Get More tickets and 2 bags of no more than 40 kg in combined weight for All In tickets.

Unless they have already checked in, passengers can add to their checked luggage allowance. They can do this online or by calling Flybe's customer service team. Checked baggage can be added online up to 2 hours before and by phone up to 4 hours before takeoff. There is no charge for certain special items, such as strollers, wedding attire or mobility aids. Sports equipment will be carried for an extra fee, which varies depending on the exact nature of the equipment. Any passenger exceeding their luggage allowance in any way will be charged.

When I arrived at check in for the return leg of my flight, staff told me I had "requested a refund" and was no longer on my flight home. I hadn't requested a refund. I had to buy myself another ticket while still at the airport at a much higher price arriving home much later than planned. I'm disabled, so this whole situation had a severe adverse effect on my health and I'm missing work while recovering this week. I'm now down a couple hundred pounds and will be seeking remuneration from your company.

Would have been 5 stars if my 4 year old wasn't expected to sit a row back opposite me with a complete stranger on the way home. I cannot believe that a child is expected to sit away from their parent.

Unfortunately we have only rated our flight 2 stars due to the return flight. Going out to Aberdeen was excellent, coming back however was not so good. My husband is disabled and on the flight out our seats we 18a and 18b which was perfect. In through the back of the plain in wheelchair and into our seats. Coming back we were allocated the same seats but when we go on the plane the cabin crew said we had to sit in 16a and 16b which made it terribly difficult for my husband as it was further down the plane so the wheelchair assistance was trying to get my husband into his seat with other passengers trying to get around him. Our seats were given to a male and female who also could not understand why they had been moved. When we asked for an explanation we were just told 'we have to have certain people in certain seats' What exactly does that mean? We were extremely disappointed after the excellent experience on the flight out. This left my husband quite distressed and uncomfortable for the return flight!

Not allowed to take an open bottle of water or pop through security, but once in duty free could buy a bottle of anything, open it up & then get onto the flight - don't understand reasons behind this?
