Reborn Flybe set to put first flights on sale


Revived regional airline Flybe is finally set to start selling tickets next week, as the carrier reveals its first routes from two UK airports with services due to begin in spring 2022.

The Birmingham-based carrier, which has been reborn following the brand’s collapse in March 2020, said flights will go on sale on 22 March featuring routes from its first two bases: Birmingham and Belfast City airports. 

Flybe said it would be announcing its full list of routes, destinations and fares next week, with plans to add more flights as “the summer progresses”. 

Flybe’s CEO, Dave Pflieger said: “Next week is going to be an exciting time for customers and communities that have been waiting to hear from us about low fares, new routes and new destinations – all of which are being timed to coincide with the restart of the economy and a return to normalcy after two difficult years for all. 

“Our team has been working hard for over a year and a half to bring customers a new airline that people will love, and we are particularly excited to be flying to Belfast City airport and serving Northern Ireland.”

Pflieger added that Flybe planned to add services to “many other cities in the UK and EU” after launching its initial network from Birmingham and Belfast City.

“We are confident that a new and improved Flybe will provide customers with great value, more choices, and the opportunity to quickly and more conveniently visit loved ones, go
on holiday and more easily visit customers or attend important meetings,” he said.

Flybe plans to use Dash 8-400 turboprop airliners for its services, with plans to build its fleet up to 32 aircraft.
