It’s business as usual for the UK’s Number One Domestic airline, as Flybe confirms that it intends to operate 100% of its flights on Thursday 22nd April. This, just 24 hours after the blanket ban that closed the entire UK airspace for almost a week following the Icelandic volcanic eruption, was lifted.
Flybe plans to operate over 500 flights across its entire schedule from its 38 UK airports and from the 32 airports that it serves in regional Europe.
Mike Rutter, the airline’s Chief Commercial Officer, said: “We’ve worked around the clock to ensure that Flybe can operate at 100% capacity tomorrow. The unprecedented challenges we’ve had to overcome over the past week have tested the robustness of everyone throughout the aviation industry.
“We are delighted that we can return to normal service and would like to take this opportunity to thank all our passengers for their patience and loyalty through this most trying time. We can assure them we will do our utmost to maintain our commitment to providing the quality customer service to which they are accustomed.”
