British airline Flybe has “stopped trading” and canceled all scheduled flights, the company and the British Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) said on Saturday.
“Flybe, which operated scheduled flights from Belfast City, Birmingham and Heathrow to airports across the UK, Amsterdam and Geneva, has suspended transactions,” the CAA said in a statement.
“Since all Flybe flights have been canceled, we ask that passengers planning to fly with this airline do not go to the airport,” said Paul Smith, CAA’s chief consumer officer.
Flybe warned in a statement posted on social media that the canceled flights “will not be rescheduled.”
The company has been taken under control, according to a statement.
The Exeter-based low-cost airline was founded in 1979 and was at one point Europe’s largest independent regional airline, carrying over 8 million passengers a year and operating over 200 routes.
The company was struggling even before the announcement on Saturday. Flybe went bankrupt as the coronavirus pandemic plunged the entire global aviation industry into crisis. She was rescued in 2021 after her manager agreed to a contract with Time Opco.
