Priding ourselves of being one of a few virtual Avro RJ85 operators...

Note: This is a press release for an airline subsidiary at flyeuro.com dated 08/06/2014. Recruitment for new members is open at http://britain.flyeurova.com. Once registered, the member will be also registered on our flyeuro.com and blueArrow CARGO services.

Don't they all look beautiful? Take them on a spin today!



One year ago, our staff team envisaged a brand new concept of a regional low-cost airline. Inspired by the real counterpart flybe, the new concept was added to inspire variety at flyeuro. On this day, a year ago, flybritain was in final planning stages, and released to over 80 of our pilots at the time on June 14th, 2013. The launch was so successful, that our daily PIREPs doubled. It brought our old Total PIREPs per day record from 26 up to a whooping 59! At least 75% of the operations have been conducted under the flybritain's flag during the first week of operations. We even had the cheek to come up with a slogan (that didn't make it as our final one of course!) of "Your only virtual alternative to flybe!".

Sadly, something changed. Now flybritain accounts for merely 9% of our total operations. It was time to act. For the first time, the changes were mostly inspired by the choices of our community. You have had the say towards the changes at flybritain. Essentially, without you, flybritain would not exist.

Therefore, to celebrate one year anniversary of this fabulous concept, we bring you two new aircrafts. Embraer E175 and DHC-6 Twin Otter. The first will be a modern alternative to our aging Avro RJ85 aircraft, one of which will be retired. However, we still want to be unique by being one of the very few virtual airlines to operate this aircraft type. Amongst these two aircraft types, we bring you a new flybritain hub at Belfast City with 18 new routes across the network, and 10 new destinations to places like Linkoping, Barra, Sumburgh, Caen and more!

Beside these changes, we have also reviewed our mainstream division, and retired Sofia and Lanzarote hubs. We have introduced their replacements: Vienna and Oslo Rygge / Moss. Another review is up in August, where we will be retiring another underperforming hubs to keep the network fresh and updated. Additionally, in March we have severely limited our staff team and our staff meetings, and established a core management structure of a few dedicated staff members and founders. These people have always worked extremely hard for the success of the airline. And now, we want to increase the user feedback and interaction, as you are what makes us!

I do hope that this update will increase your interest for both flybritain and flyeuro. A full list of changes can be viewed below:
