Virgin Atlantic and Stobart Aviation have established a joint venture named, Connect Airways. Connect Airways will acquire UK regional airline Flybe.

The new airline will operate under the Virgin Atlantic brand and be incorporated into the existing long-haul network. Staff reductions are likely to be a part of the acquisition process.

Purchase remains conditional to shareholder and court approval.

I have to wonder how long it will be before we see all those Flybe regional aircraft in VS colors. I also have to wonder if we won't see some sort of fleet consolidation or perhaps an order for new Embraers or possibly the lovely Airbus A220.

I can't imagine BA will be all too thrilled by this.

After the failure of Little Red, can VS turn around their short-haul fortunes?

Indeed. I sure hope so. I want them to succeed with this, as I do rather enjoy watching BA squirm. If they are successful, it will indeed be much to the annoyance of BA.

Indeed. This could get interesting for sure.
