About Flybe

Operating more than 210 routes to fifteen nations, Flybe is Europe's largest independent airline. Established in 1979, it's a low-cost airline which operates both domestic and short-haul international flights. Flybe has more than 75 planes, most of which are Bombardier Dash 8 Q400s, and it carries 8 million passengers each year. The company is based in Exeter with hubs in Birmingham and Manchester.

Flybe is a member of the European Regions Airline Association and has three franchise partners: Stobart Air, Blue Islands and Eastern Airways. It has codeshare agreements with a number of airlines, including British Airways and Virgin Atlantic.

Three ticket types are usually available for Flybe flights: Just Fly, Get More and All In. Passengers travelling with Flybe or its franchise partners can join the Avios Travel Rewards Programme, while holders of Flybe credit cards can join the airline's Spend&Fly loyalty scheme.

How do I check in online with Flybe?

Passengers who have e-tickets can check in online from 36 hours before until two hours before their departure time. If you've booked an onward or return Flybe flight which departs within 24 hours of your first flight, you can check in for that at the same time. Unfortunately, unaccompanied minors and parties containing more than two infants can't use the Flybe online check-in service.

Once you've checked in online, you can print off your boarding pass. If you're taking luggage that needs to be checked in, go to the Flybe bag drop area when you arrive at the airport. If you're only carrying hand luggage, you can go straight to security and the departure lounge. Make sure that you report to the boarding gate no more than 15 minutes before departure or you won't be able to fly. If you require assistance, you'll need to notify staff at the Flybe bag drop desk at least one hour before your flight's departure time.

You can only check yourself in via the online check-in service and you must be able to present valid photo identification or a valid passport (depending on what's applicable for your flight) at the boarding gate. If you change your reservation after you've checked in online, you'll need to check in again at the airport's Flybe desk.

What is my checked baggage allowance on Flybe?

According to the Flybe baggage allowance policy (valid for Eastern Airways, Stobart Air and Blue Islands too), all travellers are allowed to bring onboard:

  • 1 standard bag (55x32x20cm - wheels and handles included).
  • 1 small handbag or personal item (laptop, briefcase) to be stored under the front seat.
  • The combined weight must not exceed 10kgs.

This hand baggage policy must be complied with. For oversized bags, a £50 extra charge will be applied before boarding, and the bags won't be allowed inside the cabin - they will need to be collected after the flight from the carousel.

What hand luggage can I take on Flybe?

The Flybe cabin baggage rules state that if you're travelling on a Flybe, Stobart Air, Blue Islands or Eastern Airways flight, you can carry one standard cabin bag and one small personal item, such as a briefcase, handbag or laptop bag. The individual size restrictions for these items are as follows:

  • Cabin bag– when wheels and handles are included, this must not exceed 55 cm x 35 cm x 20 cm.
  • Personal item – must be able to fit underneath the seat in front of you.

Together, these items must not weigh more than 10 kg and must not contain any prohibited items, such as sharp objects or loose batteries.

I was disappointed that a ?70 flight cost me over double that in the end simply because the online return flight times didn?t match my connections & I had to ring through to get more flexibility.

Over one hour flight delay on the return journey. No apologies on announcement for late boarding left to Pilot to explain the delay. I always experience a delay on the homeward journey no problems usually leaving the Isle of Man. Luggage in hold can take a long time to arrive at the collection point at Birmingham.0
