Flybe boss: Decision to cut 300 jobs 'not taken lightly'

I am extremely disappointed that many valued and hard-working colleagues may have to leave the organisation.

It's a decision the board and I have not taken lightly; it's one we have tried to avoid and it is the first time in almost 30 years of business that we have had to take such action.

– Jim French, chairman and chief executive of Flybe
