So far Flybe have not failed to impress me. Another great flight, smooth, punctual and very cheap. £45 return! One hour instead of 7-8 hours by train or 5-6 by car. Long may they continue the service. As I have family there it makes a huge difference.

    Ok .. just asked google, who put me on to the Norwich Airport website which states:

    'All passengers departing from Norwich Airport will be required to pay the development fee:
    Adults £10 each
    Children (0-15) FREE
    Age applies at time of departure – proof of age may be required'

    So 'required' .. I guess information was either wrong, or out of date ... some funny threads on other websites quoting people's opinion on it!!!

    Next time I go there I shall have a better look. I did search but couldn't see anyway through to departures without paying to lift the barrier. Norwich have been charging this for a while but I must confess that I've never seen any improvements.I'll report back if I find a way. Thanks for the tip!

    If I remember correctly, this 'development levy' was not (at the time) compulsory - but they put the machines right by the entrance you must pass thru to get to security/departures .. someone did tell me that you could go to a window somewhere and ask for a leave voucher (or whatever) without paying - but if there is such a thing it's not very obvious.
    Had a similar thing when leaving Auckland, NZ many years ago - but this time it was compulsory .. and we had tried to give the last of our NZ dollars to our son who was travelling around NZ at the time and he said 'no - you might want a coffee when you're waiting in departures' - good job he did as we'd passed the point of no return (and they didn't accept cards in those days gone by). Life is full of adventrue lol

    Yes, you still have to pay to leave!!! £10. I did wonder what would happen if passenger didn't have any money :)

    We've used Flybe from Glasgow to Southampton and, like yourself, having a 'direct' flight can replace an otherwise lengthy/tiresome journey .. my lasting thoughts about Norwich airport is having to 'pay to leave' lol
