“… Flybe has now spoken out to reassure users that it bears no relation to Flybmi.
A post on Twitter said: “We are very sorry to hear about the situation with the competing British regional airline Flybmi and our thoughts are with their employees during these difficult times.
“Flybe has nothing to do with Flybmi and our flights continue to operate as normal.”
But while flights may be unaffected, the airline is currently mid way through a takeover that could affect passengers later this Spring.
The company is currently being bought out by the firm behind Virgin Atlantic in a £2.2 million takeover.
It comes after the carrier put itself up for sale in November, placing 2,300 jobs at risk, just weeks after issuing a profit warning.
Speaking on what this means for customers, a Flybe spokeswoman told Mirror Money no changes to schedules are expected.
“There will also be no changes to bookings from its website, while existing flights won’t be affected by the announcement,” a comment added.
On twitter, the Exeter-based airline said: “Flights will continue to operate as per our published schedule and you can continue to book flights with us at Flybe.com “.
And speaking about flights over the summer holidays, it said: “Flybe with its consortium including Virgin Atlantic & Stobart Group would like to reassure passengers that there will be no major change to our published schedules to the end of Summer 2019 (i.e. end of Oct 19).”
Flybe, whose roots date back to 1979, has 78 planes operating from smaller airports such as London City, Southampton, Cardiff, Aberdeen and Norwich to destinations in the UK and Europe.
It serves about eight million passengers a year, but has been struggling to recover from a costly IT overhaul and has been trying to reduce costs. …”
