The British Airline Pilots Association (Balpa) has been in talks with the administrator to save as much of the regional airline as possible.
Despite Flybe’s collapse on 5 March, Balpa said the airline performed an “extremely important” function around the UK, stimulating economies and linking passengers with onward connections.
“I believe there is a good economic case for a strong regional UK airline,” said Brian Strutton, Balpa’s general secretary.
“Flybe operated routes which were not only economically and regionally vital, but also profitable.”
The airline operated from airports such as Southampton, Exeter, Cardiff, Aberdeen, Birmingham and Edinburgh.
According to travel data and analytics expert Cirium, Flybe operated 2,374 flights each week from 43 different hubs.
