Flybe's latest (published) results (2018 H1) show they *own* 23 aircraft. anyone know what type these are, I'm assuming they're all Dash 8s?
And what would they be worth for liquidators?

The MAN flights delayed took off and on route to EDI & ABZ

Would be nice to think cabin crew up and down the cabin offering a free farewell drink on the flight. :bigthumbsup:

Hopefully not the death of British regional carriers....the days of Jersey European, Air UK, Brymon, Manx, etc. long gone.

There's still Eastern and Loganair. Hopefully they can survive.

Im wondering what the impact would be on the airports that had services from flybe such as southampton, cardiff, belfast etc. I presume some of these airports could possibly close down as flybe was the main operator at many of these airports. Such a mess for everyone involved.

Those airports closing down is a bit extreme, obviously it’s going to have a serious effect but other airlines will step on certain routes.

Some of them will still have holiday charters and LCC flights to keep them afloat.. But for small airports and regional British traffic, Loganair or Eastern would need to step in.

You never know, imagine having 90% of flights gone overnight in the case of southampton. I dont know if other airlines with larger aircraft would want to step in.

Im curious to see who will take what, and where. lets see how it all pans out.

How sad for those 2,000 workers at flybe.

I wonder if Eastern or Loganair might be able to pick up a few routes and save some of the jobs being lost.

Do they have the spare equipment and with the Coronavirus going around the traveling appearing to be reducing at this point. Might be harder than you think to keep some of these routes going. However I agree with you, it would be great if they could pick some of them up for sure.
That feeling when you sit at the end of a runway, brakes are released and the raw power takes over. Now that is a thing of beauty and it never gets old.

I can see both Eastern and Logan jumping in to fill some of that void left by Flybe.

So nothing official from FlyBe themselves yet? Should've stopped trading 20 minutes ago if all as suggested is true.

EDI-CWL is one I was thinking Loganair could pick up. Is there any scope for some of the LCCs like Ryanair and easyJet to be able to pick up any of the more busier routes?

Loganair received Stobart owned ATR-700's G-FBXA and XB last week. I believe these are outwith the already announced ATR-42 fleet renewal programme ? Another ex BMI-Regional ERJ is about to be reactivated too. It wouldn't be beyond the realms of reason to suggest they are poised to take advantage of events transpiring. I'm no gambling man, but I'm certainly keeping an eye on Loganair and what comes next.

Not an official press release as such, but according to Devon live a letter was sent to employees at 00:54, so it would seem that it’s confirmed.

To staff from CEO. It’s official.

Dear Team,
It’s with enormous sadness and a deep feeling of sorrow that I share the upsetting news that Flybe is shortly being put into Administration. Despite every effort, we now have no alternative – having failed to find a feasible solution to allow us to keep trading.
I expect Ernst & Young (EY) to be appointed as Administrators and once official they will be in contact to explain the situation and next steps. I do appreciate how distressing this news is and the shock and numbness that you will be feeling.
Despite your hard work, commitment and some amazing results which we have delivered, and have been achieving up to the last day of operation – particularly for our customers who depend on us across the country, we have come to the end of the road. While our shareholders and the Leadership Team have worked with the Government and key suppliers to try to get the funding and support needed, this has not materialised.
The coronavirus has impacted both our shareholders and ourselves and has put additional pressure on an already difficult situation. I am very sorry that we have not been able to secure the funding needed to continue to deliver our turnaround plan. Although I have only had the honour of being your CEO for 8 months, it’s been an incredible privilege to lead such an amazing team of people and the Flybe family.
I could not have asked for more – your unwavering commitment, support and resilience to deliver for our customers has been truly inspiring. I am just so sorry that we have not been able to see this through. I feel so proud of you and want to take this opportunity to thank you and wish you the very best for the future. Mark

Eastern just announced a whole host of routes (for Flybe) from MME/Teesside/Durham Tees Valley.

I imagine they are gone, even if Eastern survive on as a standalone. If there are routes to pick up from the collapse of BE, Teesside will be low priority and those aircraft may end up elsewhere on the more predictable and profitable bits of the BE network

Thoughts go out to the innocent staff and passengers of FlyBe

Doesn’t seem very heartfelt, in fact it seems very generic.
My thoughts go to the thousands of hardworking staff who have put their heart into this airline, and have been kept in the dark for the past few years as incompetent management teams were replaced with even more incompetent management teams. The only way is up from here, all the best to all involved.

Unlikely there would be any - I'm sure the vast majority of flyBE passengers aren't ATOL protected.

Flybe not a member of the ATOL scheme I presume, being a regional commuter airline, not a 'tour operator'. ?

Sad that this small but important airline ceases flying. Really curious to see how the development of new routes will go on de domestic UK market, as well as routes from BHX, EXT etc.

Loganair would be a good candidate, if they would manage to increase their fleet significantly on a short term.

Southampton today were scheduled to have 39 flybe and 4 non FlyBe departures. You don’t think they risk closure?! I think 6-7 flights total will operate from SOU today!

Cannot agree more on both accounts. I flew them many a time out of Southampton and they will be sorely missed. Its not just the airline here, its the whole infrastructure around them. Southampton and Exeter airports overnight literally become ghost towns and that will lead to further job losses. Lets hope other airlines step in promptly, although as the industry itself is struggling at the moment.....who knows!

A very sad day. :(

Would they work with some of the shorter runways that the regional airports have? I thought the CRJ was decidedly average in its runway performance.

Very sad for the staff and the UK at large. Whilst Flybe was dysfunctional at best, they provided an essential service the the regional airports the larger carriers simply weren't interested in.

I wonder if LOT will continue on its mission of gobbling up every used E-Jet it can find with the ex-Flybe ones? If anyone wants to replace them they need to use either the Q400s or get some ATRs, the E-Jet is too much for a small airline like them.

Southampton airport must be quite a ghost town with 90% of movements gone, the control tower must be very quiet. You realise then that it is not just Flybe staff it effects but all the support workers to.

An 86 seater Q400 could be filled daily from any decent sized population centre in the UK at reasonable fares and doesn't guzzle gas on a per seat basis.
Their debt overhang brought them down, not the Q400s. Those Q400s will find similar usage elsewhere in well managed companies and continue shuttling passengers around cheaply and in an environmentally friendly manner.

What happens to airports like Newquay??? Will anyone fill the gap?


Flying to places with a small population could be the reason they are bankrupt. NQY should be connected by train from LON. better for the environment too.


All well and good saying that but the rail infrastructure needs to be fit for purpose.



It's very sad to see yet another fairly sizeable UK airline go under. Thoughts with staff and also those on the ground at airports who will now hav an uncertain wait to find out what may happen to them.

What is going to happen to there aircraft, the Q400, there is going to be a lot of them released onto the market, doubt they can be absorbed quickly. I think the embraces will probably go to US market mainly and other places here and there that shouldn’t be too hard, the Q400 is the difficulty, thoughts?
