The British regional airline Flybe announced on January 28, 2023, that it had ceased operations and canceled all its flights.
“We are sad to announce that Flybe has been placed into administration,” the company said on Twitter. “All Flybe flights from and to the UK are cancelled and will not be rescheduled.”
The British low-cost airline only resumed flights in April 2022 after going bankrupt in March 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Flybe operated from two main bases in Birmingham and Belfast and hoped to take advantage of rebounding post-pandemic travel demand.
Over 75,000 passengers were affected by the cancelations.
“We urge passengers planning to fly with this airline not to go to the airport as all Flybe flights are cancelled,” Paul Smith, Consumer Director at the UK Civil Aviation Authority, said. “For the latest advice, Flybe customers should visit the Civil Aviation Authority’s website or our Twitter feed for more information.”
