Airline operator Flybe has announced a new route from Liverpool's John Lennon Airport to Edinburgh. The service will run daily in the middle of the morning starting at the end of October. It will be Flybe's fourth route from Liverpool alongside the services to Isle of Man, Belfast City and Amsterdam.
The airline is also expanding its services to those destinations with an additional flight to both the Isle of Man and Belfast leaving every day. Flybe's total number of flights to and from Liverpool will be roughly 150 per week.
Chris Brown, Director of Marketing Liverpool, said:
"A direct air link to Scotland and Edinburgh is a really valuable addition to the Liverpool City Region as it reflects requests for this connection from our business leaders."
"Aside from the significant boost this will provide for our visitor economy, it will also support our inward investment aspirations, particularly with it being launched in advance of next year’s International Festival for Business 2016.”
