Flybe: The 10 destinations you can no longer fly to from Southend airport
The UK airline Flybe has announced it has gone into administration with all flights ceasing immediately and 2,000 jobs being put at risk.
With flights cancelled with immediate effect, its website now states: "If you are due to fly with Flybe, please DO NOT TRAVEL TO THE AIRPORT unless you have arranged an alternative flight with another airline. Please note that Flybe is unfortunately not able to arrange alternative flights for passengers."
The company has also said that the impact of coronavirus has been partly to blame, but it also narrowly avoided going bust in January.
Flybe had a range of flight destinations from Southend airport which will no longer be available. We have been through the Southend Airport website and made a list of all the flights they run and the airlines they use. As far as we can see there are 10 destinations affected, these include:
But not to worry! There are still plenty of other exciting destinations available from our local airport, these include: Rodez, Kristiansand, Marseille, Girona, Bergerac, Aberdeen, Alicante, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Bergamo, Bilbao, Bordeaux, Brest, Bucharest, Budapest, Carlisle, Chisinau, Corfu, Derry, Dublin, Dubrovnik, Faro, Geneva, Ibiza, Jersey, Lanzarote, Malaga, Malta, Menorca, Murcia, Palma-de-mallorca, Paris, Prague, Pula, Reus-Barcelona-South, Sibiu, Sofia, Tenerife, Venice and Vilnius.
Southend airport tweeted their response to the news, stating: "We are deeply disappointed by the news that Flybe is entering an administration process. It is important to recognise the 2,400 Flybe employees that have worked extremely hard to keep the airline flying over the past year.
"We are also saddened that such a famous brand will no longer grace our skies. All Flybe flights have been cancelled as of immediate effect. We advise passengers not to travel to the airport but to refer to @flybe
and the @UK_CAA website for information and guidance."
For anyone who has purchased flights with Flybe, Civil Aviation Authority has released advice on what passengers can do next. If you paid with a credit card, through an airline ticket agent or a package holiday with a travel agency you may be protected - for further information read on.
