FlyBe may yet fly again......

The UK's leading travel trade publication TTG is reporting that the former UK regional airline FlyBe may yet fly again after the administrators have put in a request with the CAA for a temporary licence. 

Gary Noakes advises that the failed carrier’s administrators Interpath Advisory is seeking a permit to allow it to engage with the authority and others to restructure the business.  A source close to the administration told them that gaining the licence would allow administrators to explore a sale. "We have a short window in which we can try to get some sort of sale agreed for the business and assets,".

"The UK Civil Aviation Authority has not yet made a decision on whether to grant a temporary licence. Flybe’s licence currently remains suspended in accordance with the undertakings given by the administrators."  a spokesperson said.
