Flybe passenger numbers rise

City A.M. Reporter
Passenger numbers have fuelled a revenue rise at budget regional airline Flybe.

The regional carrier said its revenues for the three months to 30 June totalled £160.4m. That was up 8.3 per cent on the same period last year.

Passenger passenger numbers rose by 7.7 per cent to 1.98m.

Flybe said it was a "satisfactory" performance in a tough market.
