flybe, Europe’s largest independent regional airline, has celebrated the start of its new summer
"Twilight" flights from Birmingham Airport to Keflavik Airport, Reykjavik Iceland, and Ibiza which
commenced on Sunday 29 June 2014 and will operate through to 7 September, 2014 - flights to
Reykjavik will restart at the end of October 2014 operating to a daylight schedule for the winter

The inaugural flight to Reykjavik was especially important as it marked the first scheduled service
to the Icelandic airport from Birmingham and the flight was welcomed at Keflavik by a traditional
water arch. Amongst the passengers was a group of high profile UK journalists accompanied by
flybe’s Routes Director, Fred Kochak who, on arrival, together with the crew and fellow travellers,
was honoured to be greeted by the UK Ambassador to Iceland, His Excellency Mr Stuart Gill
Mr Gill, said: "I am delighted to be here to welcome the inaugural flybe flight from Birmingham
to Reykjavik. British tourists are coming to Iceland in increasing numbers – more now than from
any other nation – to enjoy Iceland’s spectacular sights all year round. It’s one more example of
the ever closer links between our two countries and I congratulate flybe on becoming the newest
airline to fly here"

Mr Kochak commented: "flybe is truly proud to be the first to offer scheduled flights between
these two great cities, linking Birmingham and Reykjavik with regular flights for the first time.
The enthusiastic welcome we have received has been overwhelming and we are pleased with
the way in which both of our new "Twilight" routes have been received by those wanting to
enjoy the very best of the wide variety of experiences that Iceland and Spain have to offer.
We look forward to welcoming all our flybe "Twilight" customers on board this summer"
