Fly to Norwich direct – and enjoy!
My wife and I have just returned from Spain to England for the summer and as we live on the North Norfolk coast we took advantage of the new direct Malaga to Norwich flights operated by flybe. We would wholeheartedly recommend the service to anyone living in the east anglia region.
Flybe is using the smaller Ambraer jets, which are comfortable quick and quiet, seating two either side of the aisle. Flight time was two hours twenty five minutes. Once the food and drink had been served we weren’t bothered with flight attendants trying to sell us scratch cards, perfumes and so on. The cost for us was actually less than flying from Stansted, especially taking into account the huge cost of taxi fares each way to say nothing of the tedious two and a half hour journey.
Norwich Airport is small and totally unlike Stansted whose terminal is really just a massive shopping mall which requires everyone to walk all the way through it. It only took about ten minutes to disembark and go through customs at Norwich. The only thing people flying from Norwich need to factor is in that the £10 a head airport tax is still in place. But we are happy to pay that for the the sheer convenience of flying from there. Also at present you can’t get your boarding passes on line flying out from Malaga although we are sure this will be possible in due course. But as the aircraft only holds about 100 it didn’t take long to obtain them from the check in desk.
We have already booked our return flight from Norwich in the autumn.
Finally, just in case you are thinking we are either flybe or Norwich airport employees or shareholders we assure you we have no connection with either other than being passengers! D&G.
