14 April 2014 | Mentions of Liberum

Flybe Group plc, Europe's largest regional airline, has named its first Bombardier Q400 aircraft the 'Spirit of Liberum' as it unveils its brand refresh and re-invigorated product and service offering.

"This brand refresh is a significant moment in Flybe Group¹s corporate history. It marks Flybe¹s return to growth with a reinvigorated product and service offering and a modernised look and feel," Saad Hammad, Chief Executive of Flybe Group, said. 

“Liberum's support and positive approach has been a constant during our turnaround and has been appreciated by everyone at Flybe. It is wonderful that we have an opportunity to recognise their contribution by naming our inaugural purple livery aircraft "Spirit of Liberum".

This not only celebrates our future as Europe’s leading independent regional airline, but also marks the start of an exciting journey ahead. Viva Flybe!"

Simon Stilwell, Liberum Chief Executive, added: "The Liberum team has worked closely with Saad and his team during Flybe’s turnaround.  It is therefore a great honour that their inaugural plane in its new purple livery bears our name.

“We believe that at the heart of Liberum's success is our independence, entrepreneurial spirit and ability to work in partnership with our clients.  Flybe's business encapsulates that spirit and we are delighted to continue our support and be part of their future in this way."
