Flybe has ceased trading and cancelled all flights.

The regional airline issued a statement on Saturday morning saying it is ‘sad to announce that Flybe has been placed into administration’.

Passengers were told not travel to airports and Flybe is not able to help arrange alternative travel.

The Civil Aviation Authority said: “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 cancelled. 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.”

CAA Consumer Director Paul Smith 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.

“We urge passengers planning to fly with this airline not to go to the airport as all Flybe flights are cancelled.

“For the latest advice, Flybe customers should visit the Civil Aviation Authority’s website or our Twitter feed for more information.”

This is the second time in three years Flybe has ceased operations.

The first was in March 2020, when it announced it was going into administration, later to be revived as Flybe Ltd, resuming operations in April 2022.

It’s reported Flybe was losing £5m a month before it collapsed the second time.
