While it is just offering domestic flights for now, European routes will also restart later this month.
ON HOL-D MORE TO COME

Flybe went into administration in March 2020 with the loss of 2,400 jobs as the pandemic destroyed large parts of the travel market. Offering domestic routes with a short term price of £19.99, the first flight has since taken off from Birmingham, a hub for the airline.

Thomas Cook also collapsed in 2019, but relaunched last summer. One-way flights begin from £29.99 on most routes. “Over the coming weeks and months our flight schedule will further ramp up as we take delivery of additional aircraft and serve other new destinations from Birmingham including Amsterdam, Avignon, Brest, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen.” Passengers were greeted by complimentary biscuits on the inaugural flight and inflight snacks.

Flybe isn’t the only airline to have gone into administration in recent years – in 2017, Monarch Airlines went bust, leading to thousands being stranded abroad. More than 70 flights cancelled today as Easter chaos continues Flights to French airports Avignon, Brest and Toulon Hyères will begin in July, with 23 routes planned by August between the UK, France and the Netherlands, with 93 flights a week.

Domestic flights between Belfast, Birmingham, Leeds and Heathrow are starting this month, with the first European flight starting on April 28 between Amsterdam and the UK. Flight BE404 landed just 51 minutes later at Belfast Airport, the second larger base for Flybe.

Before then, the airline flew approximately eight million passengers a year, both in the UK and Europe. In 2019, Icelandic airline WOW Air went bust although airline PLAY has since replaced it with cheap UK to the US flights via Iceland.
