All Flybe flights are finally canceled after the airline ceased trading
Flybe has ceased trading and canceled all flights after going into administration.
The airline said flights will not be rescheduled and that it cannot help passengers book alternative travel arrangements.
Customers wishing to travel on Flybe have been urged not to drive to the airport, although officials said they could get help from Britain’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to get home “as smoothly and cheaply as possible”.
Those who booked Flybe flights through another airline or agent are advised to contact the third party.
It is the second time the airline has gone into administration, having suspended operations in March 2020 due to the impact of the Covid pandemic.
Some 2,400 people lost their jobs and the company’s future seemed in doubt until it was bailed out by an American hedge fund in April last year.
It was soon restarted with plans to operate 530 flights a week from most of the UK’s commercial airports.
Before its bankruptcy it was the main airline for domestic flights between airports outside of London.
The government said its “immediate priority” was to help people trying to get home and staff who have lost their jobs.
“This remains a challenging environment for airlines, old and new, recovering from the pandemic and we understand the impact this will have on Flybe passengers and staff.
“The majority of Flybe’s destinations are within the UK, with alternative transport options available.”
Paul Smith of the CAA said: “It is always sad to see an airline go into administration and we know that Flybe’s decision to halt trading will be distressing for all of their staff and customers.
“We urge passengers wishing to fly with this airline not to go to the airport as all Flybe flights have been cancelled. For the latest advice, Flybe customers should visit the Civil Aviation Authority’s website or our Twitter feed for more information.’
