18 February 2019. Passengers of East Midlands airline Flybmi, which collapsed over the weekend, have been told to claim refunds for cancelled flights from their credit or debit card providers.

Those who booked via a travel agent or one of Flybmi’s codeshare partner airlines – which includes Lufthansa, Brussels Airlines, Turkish Airlines, Loganair, Air France and Air Dolomiti – will need to contact them.

The airline, which operated flights to 25 European cities, has blamed its failure on “the uncertainty created by the Brexit process,” as well as rising fuel and carbon costs.

Meanwhile Flybmi’s Glasgow-based sister company Loganair, has announced plans to step in on three routes it operated from Aberdeen. It will run flights from Aberdeen to Bristol, Oslo and Esbjerg, Denmark, from 4 March. It will also run flights from another Flybmi airport in Newcastle to Brussels and Stavanger, Norway.
