Flybe Nordic, the joint venture between UK regional carrier Flybe (BE) and Finnair (AY), will take on about one-third of the Finnish flag-carrier’s European services to cut costs and improve its financial position.
From Oct. 28, Flybe Nordic will operate AY’s 12 Embraer E-190 regional jets on a range of AY’s short-haul sectors, taking advantage of the joint venture company’s lower cost base.
At least until now the Finnair AY3??? flights operated by Flybe have been treated like Finnair's own flights e.g. re: points. I guess this would mean that they will be exactly like Finnair flights in other aspects as well?
