Flybe .. the second bankruptcy

Headquartered in Birmingham, FlyBe operates flights to 17 destinations across the UK and EU using a fleet of 8 Q400 leased aircraft.

In March 2020, the airline went bankrupt and cut 2,400 jobs after restrictions imposed as a result of the Corona virus greatly affected travel.

In October 2020, it was sold to (Thyme Opco Ltd), a company controlled by the American (Cyrus Capital), to resume flights.

In April last year, the airline was relaunched with a plan to operate up to 530 flights per week across 23 routes, with flights operating on many of the same air routes from Belfast, Birmingham and London Heathrow Airport.

The aviation sector in Europe and the United States has recently witnessed strikes among airport workers due to the mismatch between the strong demand for travel and the low number of workers, which caused the cancellation of hundreds of flights at major airports.
