February 17, 2019

Responding to the news that the airline Flybmi has gone into administration, Tim Alderslade, Chief Executive of Airlines UK, the industry association that represents 13 UK carriers, said:

“Today’s announcement demonstrates once again the ferociously competitive environment airlines currently operate in. It should give Government – and other parts of the industry who relentlessly champion passenger growth but too frequently neglect the challenges carriers face – pause for thought about the costs they are asking airlines to absorb and to what extent this is sustainable into the future.”
