Find the cheapest flight to Exeter
Situated in the county of Devon in England’s West Country, the city of Exeter was historically an important administrative point.

The low-cost airline Flybe is based at Exeter, and operates most of its flights both domestically and abroad. Getting to Exeter isn’t as easy as you might think – unless you’re already in the UK. There are flights from most major cities in the UK (although apparently not from London), as well as a few major European cities as well.

More Information on Exeter
Once a port city and key bridging point over the River Exe, a ship canal and modern road by-passes have diminished Exeter’s importance. It’s still a busy university and industrial city, however, with a healthy local economy. Exeter was a Roman city, and there are still remnants of its Roman past – including portions of the Roman city wall and a Roman baths complex. Due to repeated WWII bombings raids, Exeter is no longer the architecturally beautiful city it once was, though some of its beautiful buildings (including the 11th century Exeter Cathedral) remain. While there is a tourist trade in Exeter, the city certainly doesn’t rely on tourism to support itself – so you’re much more likely to see real English life here.
