Council leaders pledge to help Flybe

Looks like we are going to need the Magic Money Tree … again.

“Council leaders in Devon have offered to work with Flybe to keep it in Exeter.

In an open letter to the struggling airline, they say the airport brings in £150m a year to the local economy and creates “high value local jobs” which they do not want to lose.

Flybe is in talks about a possible sale of the group weeks after warning over profits.

Two-thirds of passengers at Exeter Airport fly with Flybe.

The letter was signed by the leaders of Exeter City Council, East Devon District Council, Devon County Council, Exeter College and the Heart of the South West LEP.”
