Has Flybe collapsed?
It comes following news Britain’s biggest domestic airline could collapse within days after a slump in bookings triggered by the coronavirus.
Sky News learnt that Flybe renewed a plea for ministers to provide emergency financial support, even as ongoing talks about a state loan on commercial terms appear to have been rejected.
However, now here an ITV reporter – Peter Smith has tweeted he’s stuck at Glasgow after Flybe aircrafts have been seized by Airport authorities.
Nearly 50% of flights in and out of the Island are operated by Flybe.
