The collapse of Flybe threatens a further 1,400 jobs in the supply chain, GMB analysis reveals. 

Up to 2,000 direct jobs will also be at risk if the airline fails to secure its future.

GMB members working for Swissport provide ground services for Flybe at Liverpool, East Midlands, Edinburgh and Jersey airports.

Nadine Houghton, GMB National Officer, said:

“If Flybe goes belly up, it won’t just be direct employees at risk but 1,400 supply chain jobs as well.

“Our economy is tanking. The last thing we need is an airline to go under – especially one which provides a vital public service in some parts of the country.

“If Government is serious about infrastructure investment in the regions, it must step in and protect what already exists.”
