Everything you need to know before flying with Flybe

Flybe in a nutshell

Krystof Hajek updated 14. 12. 2023

Flybe is going into liquidation on 5.3.2020 and cancelling all flights without compensation.

Flybe is the largest regional airline in Europe, presents itself as a low-cost carrier and is headquartered at Birmingham Airport. Flybe has additional bases at every major UK airport and is the largest airline in the domestic market. Flybe operates a fleet of 77 modern Embraer or Bombardier propeller aircraft.

Flybe operates two subsidiaries, Stobart Air and Loganair.

Flybe operates an interesting route from Glasgow to the Hebridean island of Barra, home to the world's only scheduled airport with no runway. Only small aircraft like the De Havilland DHC-6 can get here and land on the beach. Normally book your tickets on the Flybe website, and buy at least 6-5 months before departure for the lowest price. Return tickets from Glasgow can be had from £70.

Try to plan your trip for summer or spring, as cancellations due to bad weather are common in winter.
