The Airline was established in 2002 and started operations in June 2003. It was owned by Mike Hawkins (49.9%) and Shaun Dewey (49.9%) and operated from London Gatwick Airport, Newcastle International Airport and Manchester Ringway Airport. SilverJet acquired FlyJet in October 2006. The FlyJet London Gatwick base was then closed and Head Office and Operations all relocated from London Gatwick Airport to London Luton Airport.
