Flybe

05/03/2020We are sorry to see the news about Flybe and appreciate the anxiety that their customers will be facing now.
easyJet is working to help affected passengers by offering a dedicated rescue fee for customers up until the end of May. A fare of 65 (72) including a 15kg hold bag will be available on presentation their original Flybe booking reference.
From Thursday 5th to Friday 6th March we will be offering free flights for Flybe staff to get them home.
To contact a member of Customer Services, please call:
If calling from UK & elsewhere: +44 (0) 330 365 5030
In calling from France: 0806 141 143
If calling from the Netherlands: 0900 506 0900
If calling from Italy: 199 304 213

That to me means for example somebody has a ticket for Belfast City to Cardiff easyJet will offer you a ticket, subject to seats on for example Belfast Aldergrove to Bristol.
That's how I saw it too; it just didn't seem very clear. I messaged EZY asking for clarification but the automated reply said it didn't understand the question so I gave up.

Do we think this will give Aurigny some respite?

What might happen to the PSO flights to/from Newquay to London. Do you think BA might take it on the Heathrow or maybe BA Cityflyer in to City airport? Am I right in thinking this was there only PSO contract that had

I believe it was the only one, other routes had subsidised ie IOM-LPL as it was very important for the IOM Patient Transfer.

we have to remember that airports will be fighting for operators, particularly MAN as Flybe has a lot of connecting passengers onto other airlines from MAN

Most are not flybe apart from Exeter, Birmingham and heathrow

Aurigny and blue Islands could take up some SOU routes and offer Island connections to Paris etc

After the pandemic!

I wonder who the main creditors are.

What's the status of the Q400s? Owned? Financed? Leased? Are there pension liabilities?

It just seems criminal that there is the core of viable and sociality valuable airline sitting idle.

Maybe they'll let me buy it for a quid.

Eastern and Blue Islands still do not have a booking system set up. Just tried on Expedia too and "no flights" for the route I checked.

Skyscanner offering two stop flights. They need to fix this, fast. Also assume they will be low on this list of creditors for the monies they are owed from Flybe. Assuming Flybe didn't transfer booking monies immediately.

As per my earlier post, Blue Islands looking to have something in place within a few days. Details on their website.

In other developments, looks like Loganair are going to step in on SOU to EDI, GLA and NCL within a few weeks, and CWL to EDI also.

You would have to think that KLM will come back into the frame on SOU-AMS (it's been running at up to 5 daily recently) and perhaps EIR for SOU-DUB?

BA Cityflyer at least have been known to take deals for routes. The services to Quimper and Angers in France were subsidised by the French airports so if the money is good enough BA is more than willing to take it.

Senior managers at Southampton, Cardiff and Belfast have just been interviewed on Sky news.
The Belfast man said that they were in advanced discussions with other airlines about taking on the routes, and that announcements would be made shortly.
The Cardiff woman just waffled to the extent that I'm not sure what points she was trying to make.
The Southampton man seemed like a rabbit startled in a car's headlights although his business had most to lose. No indication was given of future announcements.

No airline would turn down a deal if it makes the route make sense. Quimper & Angers were subsidised by the airports, but there are many other examples. But these aren't PSOs, which have a lot more rules and regulations and reporting obligations.

Hopefully the Isle of Man gets some news soon. It was hoped Loganairs announcement would include some IOM routes.
