Collapsed Flybe tells passengers not to travel to airports

  • UK Business

UK airline Flybe has gone into administration, putting 2,000 jobs at risk, after a bid for fresh financial support failed.

The carrier said the impact of the coronavirus outbreak on demand for air travel was partly to blame for its collapse.

Its website now advises customers to “not travel to the airport” unless they have arranged an alternative flight.

Exeter-based Flybe narrowly avoided going bust in January.

In a letter to the airline’s staff, chief executive Mark Anderson said:

“Despite every effort, we now have no alternative – having failed to find a feasible solution to allow us to keep trading.

“I am very sorry that we have not been able to secure the funding needed to continue to deliver our turnaround,” he added.

In response to the collapse, the UK government said it was ready to help Flybe’s workers find new jobs and will work with other airlines to replace services:



“We are working closely with industry to minimise any disruption to routes operated by Flybe, including by looking urgently at how routes not already covered by other airlines can be re-established by the industry. “
