Flybe flights cancelled: Airline responds after passengers report travel disruption

Flybe has apologised to customers inconvenienced by disruption to their travel plans tonight. The airline said the issue was due to a “miscommunication” over the refuelling of two services to Birmingham.

It came following reports of disruption to flights at Glasgow Airport.

A spokesperson said: “Flybe can confirm that, following a miscommunication regarding re-fuelling this evening, two flights were delayed and that due to the crew now being out of hours, have been cancelled.

“Normal operations have now resumed.

“We sincerely apologise to those passengers inconvenienced by the disruption to their travel plans.”
