The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has announced on the Saturday that the British regional carrier Flybe has ceased trading and all scheduled flights have been cancelled.
It further stated that all tickets holders should visit the company website to check for the latest information.
Paul Smith the CAA consumer director said: “It is always sad to see an airline enter administration and we know that Flybe’s decision to stop trading will be distressing for all of its employees and customers.
“We urge passengers planning to fly with this airline not to go to the airport as all Flybe flights are cancelled.”
David Pike and Mike Pink of Interpath were immediately appointed administrators and followed on to make the following statement:
“Flybe has now ceased trading. All Flybe flights from and to the UK are cancelled and will not be rescheduled.”
The British regional carrier fell into administration in March 2020 during the height of the coronavirus pandemic losing 2400 jobs but bounced back and resumed flying April 2022
This is a sad loss for the UK domestic sector especially with the looming global recession, there will be difficult days ahead.
