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. “
