Flybe announces rebrand to ‘Virgin Connect’

Flybe’s last official livery only ever deployed on G-JECP

Flybe and Virgin Atlantic announced today that Flybe will be formally rebranded to Virgin Connect starting in 2020.

The announcement confirmed what was basically fairly obvious: No more purple and a lot more red. The rebranded airline will only operate Dash-8 Q400’s of which it has 76.

Connect is owned jointly by Virgin Atlantic, Stobart Group and Cyrus Capital Partners.

All of the jet engined aircraft are being withdrawn
