History

The airline was established and started operations on 1 November 1979 as Jersey European Airways, after taking over the operations of Intra Airways, but was taken over in 1983 by the Walker Steel Group, already the parent company of Blackpool based charter airline Spacegrand Aviation. The two airlines were initially run separately, with partially shared management, until their amalgamation within the Walker Aviation Group in 1985, under the Jersey European Airways name. The airline rebranded as British European Airways in June 2000 and later shortened this title to become Flybe on 18 July 2002 and repositioned as a full service, low-fare airline. The airline is owned by James French, Orbis Trustees and Rosedale Aviation Holdings. It has 1638 employees.
