Birmingham Airport last week saw the delivery of the reborn Flybe’s first De Havilland Canada Dash 8-400 turboprop aircraft resplendent in a new simple paint scheme.
The airline plans a fleet of 32 aircraft with 12 on lease from Nordic Capital Aviation (NAC), with these NAC planes being some of the first to join Flybe’s planned fleet of 32 Dash 8-400 aircraft.
Dave Pflieger, CEO of Flybe Ltd, said: “We are extremely pleased to be partnering with NAC to take delivery of our first De Havilland Canada Dash 8-400. This is an exciting time for our team and our new airline, and we look forward to working with both NAC and De Havilland Canada as we launch and grow our fleet with more of these incredibly fast turboprop planes that are more eco-friendly than regional jets.”
Today’s news comes after last week’s announcement (see BTN 22 November) that Birmingham Airport will be the location of Flybe Ltd’s new company headquarters and first new crew base. No details are available of the airline’s routes or a start-up date.
