Exeter City Council has offered its support to employees of the collapsed airline Flybe.
Council Leader Phil Bialyk said he was “devastated” by the news that Flybe have gone into administration.
“I’m devastated for all the families who’ve got jobs at Exeter Airport – well over a thousand here in Exeter alone. 2,500 in general across the country. That has an impact. All those families are going to be worrying about what is going to be happening next to their career and their livelihood.”
Cllr Bialyk said the City Council was working closely with its partners to see what could be done for all those involved.
“We will be there and available. We will see what we can do as a city, first and foremost.”
