Any of you rely on them for connections to the UK?

That made me laugh

They have gone into administration and are claiming it is due to the new coronavirus. One of those super cheap airlines running on the smell of an oily rag, so hardly surprising.

There used to be flights Toulouse <-> Manchester which I used a few times. Cheap and cheerful, yes, but on the occasions I used Flybe I was very content with the flights and the service. Sorry to see them go.

But flights from Toulouse to London airports are plentiful, and there are regular buses from London to Manchester, so a bit of re-arranging of itineraries should do the trick.

I personally don't care.

Less air travel the better IMHO.

Unlikely to mean less air travel, just one less airline.
While I think their hub slots will be de facto sold by this evening I don't see many still terminating in France. Will make a difference to those who frequently travel from/to the UK.

Which would I think be a risk

TBH it will have zero impact on me, I just take exception to the business model. (And IMHO companies like this do increase the numbers of people flying.)

Their good slots will bought up by the biggies to be used as hub feeders, the desire for which is at least partially why they've gone under. EY allegedly had offers on all of their Manchester ops last night before they officially folded, that'll probably be BA/IAG.
