Flybe, a British airline based in Exeter, England, has now ceased trading and all flights from and to the UK operated by Flybe have been canceled and will not be rescheduled.

In response to Flybe entering administration, Matthew Hall, Chief Executive of Belfast City Airport said:

“First and foremost, our thoughts are with Flybe employees and passengers affected by this disappointing and unexpected news.

“Passengers booked on Flybe flights should not travel to the airport and should seek further advice from the Civil Aviation Authority.

“Flybe operated 10 flights to and from Belfast City, 8 of which are currently served by other carriers from our airport.

“Alternative travel to Birmingham; Glasgow; Leeds Bradford; London Heathrow, Amsterdam; Edinburgh; Manchester; and Southampton can be arranged through Aer Lingus, KLM, British Airways and Loganair which operates flights to Teesside International from Belfast City Airport.”

The below outlines the routes served by BE and the alternatives available:

Birmingham – served by Aer Lingus
Glasgow – served by Aer Lingus
Leeds Bradford – served by Aer Lingus
London Heathrow – served by British Airways
Amsterdam – served by KLM
Edinburgh – served by Aer Lingus
East Midlands – seeking alternative carriers
Manchester – served by Aer Lingus
Newcastle – Loganair flies to Teesside International
Southampton – served by Aer Lingus

Once again, if you are due to fly with Flybe today or in the future, please DO NOT TRAVEL TO THE AIRPORT unless you have arranged an alternative flight with another airline.

Please note that Flybe is unfortunately not able to arrange alternative flights for passengers.
