New routes to France from Southampton added for 2016

18th January, 2016
Regional airline Flybe has now made it even easier to travel between the UK and France with new routes added between the south coast?s Southampton and three French destinations: Biarritz, Toulon Hyeres and Bastia.

Biarritz, found on the Basque coast, has been a popular holiday destination ever since the 1800s, when it was first visited by British royalty such as Queen Victoria, and is well-known for its excellent water-sports facilities and nightlife. For the first time, Flybe will be adding flights from Southampton to Biarritz three days a week (on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays) between July 3 and September 25.

Toulon-Hyeres airport is the gateway to the Provence-Alpes-Cote-d?Azur region, hugely popular with holidaymakers for its range of diverse landscapes, from the towering mountains of the Alps to rolling vineyards and the world-renowned beaches of the Cote d?Azur. Visitors will now be able to fly between Southampton and Toulon three times a week between July and September, on Mondays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Southampton to Bastia, situated on the Mediterranean island of Corsica, is a returning route, running every Sunday between May 22 and September 18.

Many of our luxury French gites and villas can be found in Biarritz and the Provence-Alpes-Cote-d?Azur region, so if you?re planning on staying with us, why not make getting there easier by taking advantage of these new flights?
