Flybe was pushed into administration in March 2020 with the loss of 2,400 jobs as the Covid-19 pandemic destroyed large parts of the travel market.

Before it went bust it flew the most UK domestic routes between airports outside London.

Its business and assets were purchased in April 2021 by Thyme Opco, which is linked to US hedge fund Cyrus Capital.

Thyme Opco was renamed Flybe Limited.

The airline will be based at Birmingham Airport.

One thought on “Flybe, now Birmingham based, full list of new flight routes for 2022

  1. If you look at the route list, it actually looks like FlyBe is now a Belfast based airline. 12 routes to/from Belfast and only 7 routes to/from Birmingham. Birmingham is already well served by other airlines, so the impact on Northern Ireland is probably much more significant.

    However, you have to now wonder whether Exeter Airport remains viable. Today’s flights:

    ARRIVALS
    ISLES OF SCILLY 10:15
    JERSEY 10:35
    NEWCASTLE 15:35
    DEPARTURES
    ISLES OF SCILLY 10:45
    JERSEY 11:05
    NEWCASTLE 16:15

    You have to have a certain number of staff to do all the different jobs, and with this few flights, most of the staff will be able to have extended coffee breaks for most of the time.
