British airline Flybe announced on Saturday that it had suspended operations and canceled all its flights.
“We regret to inform you that Flybe has been placed into (judicial) administration,” the company tweeted.
“Flybe is now ceasing operations. All Flybe flights to and from the UK have been canceled and will not be rescheduled,” he added.
The British Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has asked passengers booked on Flybe flights not to go to the airport, “All Flybe flights have been cancelled,” said Paul Smith, manager, in a press release.
“It is always sad to see an airline go into (legal) administration, and we know that the cessation of Flybe’s operations will be difficult for all its employees and customers,” he said.
After going bankrupt in 2020 due to the pandemic, Flybe only resumed flights in April, a major blow to much of the airline industry.
The company, formerly the leader in domestic aviation in the United Kingdom, operated 530 flights a week, mainly from London’s Heathrow Airport to British cities but also overseas such as Amsterdam and Geneva.
Following bankruptcy in 2020, Flypin’s assets were acquired by Time Opco, a company linked to US investment fund Cyrus Capital.
