Revived Flybe Resumes Services

The UK regional airline Flybe has announced its return to the skies, almost exactly two years after its demise when it fell into administration after years of financial struggles and the effects of the global pandemic.

After resuming services in April, Flybe Ltd launched its first inaugural flight with a domestic route from its new headquarters in Birmingham Airport (BMX) across the Irish Sea to Belfast City (BFS).

The revived airline recently announced plans to operate four daily flights between the two airports, before launching 23 domestic and international routes in Summer, serving airports including Belfast City, East Midlands, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Inverness, Heathrow and Leeds, Bradford, and Birmingham. Once the country’s biggest regional airline, Flybe strives to win back its former status with plans to serve up to 530 flights per week.

Flybe CEO Dave Pflieger reflected on the airline’s revival, saying: “Over the coming weeks and months our flight schedule will further ramp up as we take delivery of additional aircraft and serve other new destinations from Birmingham including Amsterdam, Avignon, Brest, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen.”
