Min­is­ters res­cue Flybe in tax-de­lay­ing deal

The Daily Telegraph - - Front Page -

Flybe, the trou­bled air­line, was pulled back from the brink of go­ing un­der last night when min­is­ters backed a deal to de­lay a £106mil­lion tax bill, sav­ing more than 2,000 jobs and avert­ing chaos for thou­sands of pas­sen­gers. Europe’s big­gest re­gional car­rier was al­lowed to de­lay pay­ing air pas­sen­ger duty pay­ments, although crit­ics at­tacked the set­tle­ment as “a bla­tant mis­use of pub­lic funds”.
