Collapsed airline Flybe is set to return to the skies next month. 

Flights are set to commence from April 13, with the airline announcing it will fly up to 530 services each week across 23 routes. 

The regional carrier will serve airports such as Glasgow, Belfast City, Birmingham, East Midlands, Heathrow and Leeds Bradford.

The airline went into administration in March 2020 as the coronavirus pandemic emerged, with more than 2400 jobs lost. 

In April 2021, the business and its assets were purchased by Thyme Opco, which is linked to US hedge fund Cyrus Capital. 

Thyme Opco has been renamed Flybe Limited and the airline will now be based at Birmingham Airport. 

Flybe CEO, Dave Pflieger, said: “We are delighted to now be out for sale and starting service next month. 

“We think our new flights will benefit everyone who wants low fares and more flights to go on holiday and visit loved ones. Our new network will also ensure better regional connectivity inside the UK and between various UK and EU regions.”

He added: “Our goal is to create an airline that people love, and we aim to do that by making air travel on Flybe an easy and enjoyable experience so you will fly with us again in the future. 

“The new Flybe team has worked tirelessly over the past year to create an airline that delivers on price, schedule, and choice, and we look forward to having you book a ticket on and start flying again next month, this summer, and in the many years ahead!”
