The last flights of the Exeter-based airline ended at British airports late last night, after hours of speculation that the company would cease operations. Flybe had been in financial trouble for some time, and fewer passengers due to the outbreak of coronavirus was crucial.

During the day, railway companies in the UK offered free travel to staff as well as Flybe customers for the next seven days. By the way, Flybe was founded in 1979 and was the largest regional airline, which until yesterday employed about 2000 people. Although he was primarily a regional airline, his planes also flew to some European destinations, including Croatia.
