Flybe: "In Flybe UK, trading conditions remain challenging, as expected. Forward ticket sales revenue for winter 2011/12 is currently down 1% year-on-year, while our capacity management programme means seats flown will be down by 6% against the previous year. We will continue to monitor closely trends and review our flying programme to ensure that capacity remains optimally matched to demand. Across the Flybe Group including Flybe Finland, however, we are expecting an increase in scheduled seat capacity managed by Flybe in winter 2011/12 of 7% year-on-year, with a similar increase in passengers,” Jim French, chairman and CEO.
