We still might be in the midst of summer but with less than four months until Christmas, thoughts are starting to turn to booking winter flights.And, it would appear at this stage, that travelling back and forth between the UK and Palma this winter is going to be complicated again.
Winter flights connectuions have already been dealth a blow by Flybe’s  announcement that holidaymakers from the Westcountry will face a longer journey in search of the sun after next month, when Flybe scraps regular flights to Spain and Portugal.
The airline’s Summer Sun routes from Exeter will not be extended into the winter this year. And Flybe has admitted that from next year its remaining Exeter-based aircraft will no longer have the range to reach holiday spots in Spain and Portugal.
Flybe also operates out of Newquay Airport, where its direct flights are focused on domestic routes. The change means Westcountry travellers will be limited to charter flights from Exeter and Newquay.
