By user 10 April 2017 0

Skywheels secured the 5-year deal with UK’s busiest Regional Airline back in April 2016, and we have now seen record numbers pass through our facility as a result of this.

The Exeter based Airline sees over 7 million passengers each year and operates over 149 different routes, which firmly places them as the largest independent Regional Airline in Europe.

Over 3,500 Flybe units will pass through our facility each year, and this volume contributes to around 30% of our Annual total throughput.

Lee Cullen, Director of Operations added: “For 2017 Skywheels will operate with a man power plan of 50 staff and our capacity plan will increase to around 14,000 wheels and 3000 Brakes based on investments equipment, facilities and shift patterns. Its amazing for someone like myself who has spent just over 15 years with the company, and over a period of time has seen it grow into something very special and something we can all be proud of”
