    Default Flybmi Ceases Operations

    BBC News; Saturday 16 February 2019
    UK regional airline Flybmi ceases operations

    British regional airline Flybmi has cancelled all its flights and filed for administration, the airline has announced.

    The company said it had been badly affected by rises in fuel and carbon costs and uncertainty over Brexit.

    The East Midlands-based airline, which has 376 staff, operates 17 planes flying to 25 European cities.

    Affected passengers have been told to contact their travel agents or insurance and credit card companies.

    A Flybmi spokesman said: "It is with a heavy heart that we have made this unavoidable announcement.

    "The airline has faced several difficulties, including recent spikes in fuel and carbon costs, the latter arising from the EU's recent decision to exclude UK airlines from full participation in the Emissions Trading Scheme.

    "Current trading and future prospects have also been seriously affected by the uncertainty created by the Brexit process, which has led to our inability to secure valuable flying contracts in Europe.

    It will not be the last British airline to fold I fear. others are in sh*te creak at the moment. Rationalisation is happening and will continue to happen.

    Just another outfit badly run by BA after a buy out. No doubt much the same as all the other small regional outfits taken under the wing of BA. Hidden agenda LHR slots! But there again BA management style can never work with a smaller airline, too expensive and layered management

    Had sod all to do with BA. Wasn't owned by them. It was a brand that came after BA took BMI over. Google will tell you whom owned the company.
