This is a reliable service which is reasonably priced. The staff are friendly and generally it runs on time. Boarding is quick and easy and check-in is efficient at both ends. The prices are reasonable. I prefer landing in Belfast City as you can be in the city in 15 minutes.

Check in was very slow which was a bit odd with so few passengers boarding. A slight hiccup at first in that the on board computer needed to be rebooted, but after that the journey was faultless. Our arrival at Tegel was incredibly quick, we were leaving the airport within 15 minutes of "seat belts off". Staff on board were...

The fares are similar to Ryanair. But the attendants seam that they have more experience. Online check in is available. Only handbaggage. Im contrast to ryanair can you choose your seat in advance online, this doesn't work sometimes with ryanair.

Having booked in online, my daughter and I arrived at Newquay Airport, with only hand luggage, 40 minutes before the flight was due to depart. We passed through security without any problem and almost as soon as we arrived in the airside area our flight was called. We walked with the rest of the passengers across the apron and climbed...

It's a good flight by a good airline - but where it really wins is on the ground. Check-in at Exeter is easy in this small airport but Paris CDG is huge, but the all the arrival business is as good as possible in that airport terminal city. Above all - if you travel often to Paris - the FlyBe...
