Loganair has announced that it is taking over the route between London City Airport and the Isle of Man. This route is currently operated by British Airways, but the aircraft and crew used are actually chartered from Loganair.
Flights under the Loganair brand will start on 1st September. Flights are currently only bookable until 31st October.
Nothing is ever simple, of course. Passengers who are booked on the British Airways service will not be transferred to the Loganair flight. This is despite the fact that it will be the same aircraft that they were due to fly on originally!
Passengers need to claim a refund from British Airways and then rebook at the current price via Loganair.
Regular Isle of Man visitors may want to sign up for Clan Loganair, the frequent flyer programme, which we reviewed here.
