Flybe to lose 300 staff

Around 300 jobs are to go at Exeter based airline Flybe.

The company is trying to cut costs by £35 million as passenger revenues fall and fuel prices increase. Chief financial officer, Andrew Knuckey, said economic pressures meant there was "no choice" but to cut jobs.

The airline's call centre was outsourced last month and they're considering outsourcing more parts of the business such as onboard catering.
