Read the latest Channel stories, Flybe in survival talks to prevent collapse: What does it mean for the Channel Islands? on ITV News, videos, stories and all the latest Channel newsReports suggest that commercial airline Flybe is at risk of collapse. The company, which employs 2,000 people, has been in crisis talks to try to prevent it from going under, just one year after a consortium led by Virgin Atlantic bought the airline for £2.2 million. In Jersey the airline has the third largest share of the market, operating 16 year round routes. In Guernsey it is much less with only two out of the total number of 13 year round routes. Flybe is yet to officially comment on the report from Sky News, but in a tweet say they 'continue to provide great service and connectivity for customers' and that they do not 'comment on rumour or speculation.' Despite that, people from the islands have already raised their concerns on social media about the possible collapse and prospect of losing money.
