Flybe ceases trading

Flybe ceases trading and cancels all scheduled flights

Flybe Ceases Trading - Flybe customers have been advised NOT to travel to airports as flights will not be operating.

On January 27th, British airline Flybe announced that it had entered administration and would cease operations, less than a year since commencing flight services. All future scheduled flight services have been cancelled, and the airline emphasized in its announcement that they will not be rescheduled.

The airline stated, that it would not be able to help passengers arrange alternative flights.  If you have booked a flight via a 3rd party, please contact your booking agent, for advice.

Flybe customers who still need to travel, will need to make their own alternative travel arrangements via other airlines, rail or coach operators.

The UK Civil Aviation Authority will provide advice and information to affected passengers. More information can be found on when it is available.

This is the second downfall for the airline, having first collapsed in March 2020 as the then-struggling carrier failed to withstand the sudden plunge in passenger demand caused by the pandemic. Flybe was among the first few airlines to go out of business when the pandemic first emerged.

The airline was relaunched in 2021 as Flybe Limited and the reincarnated Flybe commenced flight services in April 2022, when it intended to serve 16 airports in the UK, France, and the Netherlands during the summer season, sadly, it seems the relaunch efforts have not been enough to ensure Flybe remained flying.

Flybe operated up to 530 flights per week across 23 routes, serving airports such as Belfast City, Birmingham, East Midlands, Glasgow, Heathrow and Leeds Bradford.
