When it was recently announced that flybe was bought by a Virgin Atlantic-led consortium, it was clear that its accrual partnership with Avios would come to an end. This indeed happened on April 30 – but no alternative is yet in place. A partnership with Virgin Atlantic’s Flying Club is yet to start while flybe also seems to work on the (re)launch of an own FFP, which still needs to see the light of the day, too. So flying today on flybe simply rhymes with earning no FFP miles – a scenario, which might not really help to alleviate the difficulties at the regional carrier. flybe offers though a co-branded credit card in the UK, which allows earning free flights on flybe.
