Flybe Addresses Its Legacy Fleet

FLYBE HAS revealed details of a new fleet modernisation plan that will make it the world’s largest Bombardier Dash 8-Q400 operator.

The cornerstone is an agreement with Embraer under which the Exeter-based carrier will cancel 20 E175s from an outstanding backlog of 24 (and deferral of the remaining four until 2018), while a separate deal between the Brazilian manufacturer and Republic Airways Holdings will see the US operator acquire 50 E-Jets, thought to include those cancelled by Flybe. The UK carrier has also reached an agreement to sub-lease 24 Q400s from Republic Airways, with deliveries starting in March 2015. According to Flybe, most of the new Bombardier turboprops will be a like-for-like replacement for its own examples due to return to their respective lessors over the next four years.

We also report on Latvian carrier airBaltic’s recent turnaround, welcome the arrival of Qatar Airways’ first Airbus A380 and examine whether global airline alliances are here to stay, or are they being put under pressure by new models of inter-carrier co-operation This issue celebrates some major landmarks; we join US Airways for the final flights of its iconic Boeing 737 Classics and we fly on the last Cyprus Airways service from London/Heathrow to Larnaca. Maintaining our historical theme, we have part 1 of the United/Continental Airlines story, and we fly Pam Am International Flight Academy’s full-motion Boeing 707 simulator, the last device of its kind in existence. The latest issue incorporates our comprehensive coverage of worldwide news, including Garuda Indonesia’s new services from London to Jakarta, the Boeing 737 MAX 200 launch and the official opening of Jet2.com’s multi-million pound training facility, plus all of our regular sections covering the latest commercial aircraft acquisitions, up-to-date accident reports and developments from the world of aviation training.
