300 jobs to go at Exeter-based airline Flybe

Three hundred jobs are to go at the airline Flybe, a third at its headquarters in Exeter. The company is trying to reduce costs by £35 million as passenger revenues fall and fuel prices rise.

The firm is mainly blaming the increase in air passenger tax which managers say left them with "no choice" but to cut jobs.
