The new flyBe company took over the first aircraft in the fleet
Today, 26 November 2021, new flyBe company took over the first plane in the fleet. It is a De Havilland Canada Dash 8-400 turboprop aircraft, indicative G-JECX, which is part of the 12 aircraft leased from Nordic Aviation Capital. Flybe plans to have a fleet of 32 Dash 8-400 aircraft.
Dave Pflieger, CEO of Flybe Ltd, said: “We look forward to working with both NAC and De Havilland Canada as we grow our fleet with more turboprop aircraft, which are greener than regional aircraft.
"The entire Flybe fleet will consist of Dash 8-400 aircraft, as it is an extremely fast aircraft and can operate flights as fast as a regional aircraft, but with lower CO2 emissions."
We remind you that the new flyBe company belongs to Thyme Opco, now renamed Flybe Limited, after the old flyBe company went bankrupt in March 2020.
