As you are travelling further afield, we want to be as flexible as possible so you can make the most of your holiday. 

Where flight schedules permit, we can offer flights from any UK airport. Additional supplements may apply.

When you make your booking, simply advise your booking agent which airport you would like to fly from and whether you would like one-way or return flights, and your preferred departure airport.

Should you wish to extend your holiday or explore further we'll arrange flights to fit around a Land Tour or City Stay or, should you wish to explore independently, we can book flights so you arrive early (or fly home later), you can book a stopover on selected routes, or if you prefer, you can fly to/from an alternative air city.

Flights are offered subject to availability and airline schedules available at the time of booking. 


Domestic Flights to/from Southampton

We can book domestic flights with Flybe to/from Southampton from a range of UK departure points. The fare includes a transfer between the airport and the cruise terminal and vice versa. Domestic flight availability varies by departure date and all flights are subject to the latest airline schedules. 

Airline schedules are usually released between four and six months prior to departure; at this time you can check availability by calling our Customer Contact Centre on 03453 555 111 (local call charges apply). We will be happy to answer any questions you have.

Guaranteed Flight Option

When you or your travel agent books one of our fly-cruise holidays, you may be offered the 'Guaranteed Flight' option, which is also referred to as air city 'QQQ'. This means that you will have a confirmed booking, including flights, but the specific UK airport will be allocated at a later date. Flights will be allocated to your booking at least 7 days prior to departure and the price you have been quoted will not increase. It is recommended you waitlist your preferred UK airport at time of booking.  We will do our best to allocate flights from your preferred UK airport, but we cannot guarantee this.

All people booked under the same booking will be allocated the same flights; however we may not be able to allocate the same flights to groups who have booked multiple cabins.
