Flybe had only resumed flights in April, after going bankrupt in 2020 due to the pandemic which dealt a major blow to much of the airline industry.
Formerly the leader in the field of domestic flights in the United Kingdom, the company operated up to 530 flights per week, in particular from London's Heathrow airport, to British cities but also abroad such as Amsterdam and Geneva.
Following its bankruptcy in 2020, Flybe's assets had been acquired by Thyme Opco, a company linked to the American investment fund Cyrus Capital.
