Flybe collapses

An announcement was made early this morning that Flybe has done into administration.

The airline that has been serving the UK for 40 years has collapsed after a drop in passenger numbers, rising costs and the impact of corona virus.

Serving around eight million passengers annually the airline is a major backbone to regional travel around the United Kingdom.

A message on their website and social media advised passengers not to travel to airports unless they have made their own alternative arrangements with another airline.
