Yorkshire has gained a new air link with Germany with the introduction of Dusseldorf flights from Leeds Bradford airport.
Flybe is to run daily flights on weekdays and a service on Sundays as part of its winter schedule.
The year-round Dusseldorf service provides a gateway to the Rhine-Ruhr economic region.
The regional carrier will be running up to 38 departures a week over the winter from Leeds Bradford to destinations including Belfast, Dusseldorf and Newquay.
Flybe interim chief commercial officer Ronnie Matheson said: “We are delighted to be launching our first flights between Leeds Bradford and Dusseldorf, connecting two key European business hubs.
“Our 2017/18 winter schedule has been planned specifically to provide reliable and affordable business travel as well as for those looking to take advantage of convenient flights to take a winter break.”
The airport’s aviation development director Chris Sanders said: “This new Flybe service to Dusseldorf is a welcome addition to our schedule, providing customers with connectivity to one of Europe’s key business destinations.
“Dusseldorf airport’s rail station provides ease of access to a variety of cities and destinations within Germany, with Frankfurt under two hours away and Cologne less than 50 minutes from the airport.
“This latest service from Leeds Bradford Airport is an indication of the intention we have to strengthen our route offering and increase international connectivity for Yorkshire.”
