Flybe has put flights back on sale today more than two years after the regional carrier filed for bankruptcy at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Returning regional carrier Flybe is set to put tickets on sale next week. The airline is due to unveil a full list of routes, destinations and fares as the renewed airline bounces back from bankruptcy.
Among the first UK airlines to be certified by the Civil Aviation Authority since Brexit, Flybe will serve key regions across the UK and EU. Departures are expected to start in the spring.
The joint administrators who were brought in following the demise of the regional carrier last year have confirmed the deal with a new company affiliated with investment adviser Cyrus Capital.
A possible return for the regional carrier was mooted earlier this week, with administrators at EY selling the remaining assets of the airline to a new owner.
The regional carrier went into administration in Mach this year, with the early stages of the Covid-19 pandemic compounding years of financial losses.
Regional airline Flybe has gone into administration. Falling demand for air travel in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak was partially to blame, the carrier said in a statement.
Ryanair has written to chancellor of the exchequer, Sajid Javid, calling on him to extend the air passenger duty ‘holiday’ given to Flybe to all UK airlines.
The British government has agreed a deal to keep regional airline Flybe in the air. Thought to include deferred payment of air passenger duties, the move has been criticised by environmentalists and rival airline executives.
The British government is to consider reforming air passenger duty on domestic flights as part of a plan to save Flybe from collapse. It is thought the move could save Flybe up to £100 million over three years.
Regional airline Flybe has said it will not comment on speculation it is facing renewed financial difficulties. According to Sky News, Flybe has been struggling to secure fresh finance.
