Flights to and from the Isle of Man have been one of the casualties of the pandemic, as well as one of the casualties of the demise of Flybe. Services have come and gone over the past two years.
Loganair is now making a fresh attempt to serve the Isle of Man from London.
Flights from London City Airport will start on 19th April. The route will go ‘double daily’ from 3rd May which makes it handy for a day trip.
More interestingly, Loganair is trying Heathrow Airport again and will operate a daily service from 3rd May.
Flights will operate from Terminal 2. Loganair is likely to have borrowed a slot from an airline which does not want to risk losing one now that the ‘use it or lose it’ rules are back. If it got lucky, it may even have been able to negotiate a subsidy for filling the slot.
Both routes will operate with turboprop aircraft.
It is reported that both routes will be included in the British Airways / Loganair codeshare agreement. This will allow you to book flights via ba.com – albeit potentially at a higher price than on the Loganair website – and earn Avios and tier points in return. Avios redemptions will not be available.
Tickets will go on sale next week.
