Former Bmibaby route replaced
This makes Birmingham the fifth airport to have a Flybe service to Amsterdam. Flybe also offer flights from Inverness, Exeter and Southampton to the Dutch hub.
Additionally, Flybe have confirmed that they will now be taking bookings on their new flights to Paris Charles de Gaulle, Amsterdam and Jersey from East Midlands Airport, supplementing their existing flights to Belfast City, Edinburgh and Glasgow from there.
However, this is the only route on which Flybe will be competing directly against the Dutch airline KLM. On Flybe's other flights to Amsterdam, the airline additionally provides a feeder service into the worldwide network of flights from Schiphol airport, but this facility is already provided in Birmingham by KLM.
