Best in emission and noise. FlyBe was a proud regional airline in the United Kingdom. When going to flybe.com, the Homepage of FlyBe, a pop-up solicits you to sign up for their newsletter and learn about offers first.
The next page however tells the truth. FlyBe is bankrupt and won’t operate anymore.
FlyBe Passengers are told:
On 28 January 2023, the High Court appointed David Pike and Mike Pink as Joint Administrators of Flybe Limited (“Flybe”).
Flybe has now ceased trading and all flights from and to the UK operated by Flybe have been canceled and will not be rescheduled.
If you are a passenger affected by this event, please read the advice below.
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.
If you have a Flybe booking sold by an intermediary (i.e. not directly with Flybe) that includes travel on a Flybe flight, please contact the relevant airline or booking/travel agent to confirm if there is any impact on your travel plans as the intermediary may be able to support you with alternative arrangements and provide further advice regarding any claim you may need to make.
Customers are also advised to monitor the Civil Aviation Authority website for further information www.caa.co.uk/news
If you require any further information or assistance, please contact the Administrators at: [email protected]
David John Pike and Michael Robert Pink were appointed by the High Court on 28 January 2023 as Joint Administrators to help manage the affairs, business and property of Flybe Limited, in accordance with the powers and duties contained in the order appointing them.
The Joint Administrators act as agents of the Company, without personal liability.
David John Pike and Michael Robert Pink are authorized to act as insolvency practitioners by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales.
We are bound by the Insolvency Code of Ethics.
When going to the UK Civil Aviation Authority website a statement says:
Flybe, which operated scheduled services from Belfast City, Birmingham, and Heathrow to airports across the United Kingdom and to Amsterdam and Geneva, has ceased trading.
All Flybe flights have now been canceled. Please do not go to the airport as flights will not be operating.
Flybe customers who still need to travel will need to make their own alternative travel arrangements via other airlines, rail, or coach operators.
The UK Civil Aviation Authority will provide advice and information to affected passengers. More information can be found on www.caa.co.uk/news when it is available.
Information will also be made available on our Twitter feed @UK_CAA .
Paul Smith, Consumer Director at the UK Civil Aviation Authority, said:
“It is always sad to see an airline enter administration and we know that Flybe’s decision to stop trading will be distressing for all of its employees and customers.
