Following its administration, the airline Flybe has canceled all of its flights to and from the United Kingdom.
The airline “ceased trading,” according to a statement on its website, and advised any passengers planning to fly with it not to go to the airport.
It said that it would not be able to assist travelers in finding substitute flights.
The impacted parties will get guidance and information, according to the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).
The business, which was only relaunched in April of last year, has been taken over by administrators.
It made the announcement that it would stop trading in March 2020 and cited the coronavirus pandemic as a contributing reason.
After being acquired by Thyme Opco, a company associated with the US hedge fund Cyrus Capital, and rebranded as Flybe Limited, the company was saved.
The airline started up again in April 2022 with a schedule of up to 530 flights per week on 23 different destinations.
Flybe ran flights on 21 routes from Belfast City, Birmingham, and Heathrow to airports all around the UK as well as to Amsterdam and Geneva up until its most recent failure.
The High Court had appointed joint administrators for Flybe Limited, according to a statement posted early on Saturday on the Flybe website.
All Flybe-operated flights out of and into the United Kingdom have been canceled, and no new dates have been set, according to the statement.
“Please do not travel to the airport unless you have scheduled an alternate flight with another airline if you are scheduled to fly with Flybe today [Saturday] or in the future.”
It also advised passengers to get in touch with any third parties they used to book flights with the airline directly.
“It is always disappointing to see an airline enter administration, and we know that Flybe’s decision to halt trading will be upsetting for all of its staff and customers,” CAA Consumer Director Paul Smith said.
Customers of Flybe should check the Civil Aviation Authority’s website or our Twitter feed for the most recent guidance.
The government declared that helping those who were seeking to return home and the Flybe employees who had lost their jobs would be its “immediate priority.”
According to the statement, “this continues to be a difficult climate for airlines, both new and old, as they recover from the epidemic. We are aware of the effects this will have on Flybe’s customers and employees.”
It stated that there were other ways to get to the majority of the UK destinations that Flybe served.
According to Simon Calder, a travel journalist for the Independent, customers should “very likely” receive their money refunded from their card issuer or travel agent.
Of course, it will be difficult to find alternatives, and they will cost more than the tickets they originally purchased from Flybe, he told reporters.
Despite the recent increase in demand for air travel, he claimed that Flybe had “pretty thin pickings” of travel routes when it resumed operations and had had passenger load issues.
