Loganair will launch services from the Isle of Man to both London City and London Heathrow airports from next month.
New services will start from the Isle of Man to London City from April 19, initially offering a daily flight (except Saturdays) before gearing up to two flights each weekday from May 3.
From that date, the new schedule of morning and evening flights will offer business travellers the option to do a day-return trip in both directions, plus a flight in each direction on Sunday evenings.
Services linking the Isle of Man with Heathrow will start on May 3, with a daily service designed to offer convenient connections with Loganair’s major partner airlines including British Airways to a wide range of destinations worldwide, including key points in Europe, North America and South Africa.
Both the London City and Heathrow routes will be flown under Loganair’s codeshare agreement with BA and tickets for the new flights will go on sale next week.
Loganair Chief Executive Jonathan Hinkles said: “Our conveniently timed flights to London City will offer excellent connectivity to the heart of London for both business and leisure travellers, whilst our London Heathrow services will complement that access to London itself with the broadest possible range of onward connecting flights with our partner airlines to over 100 destinations worldwide.”
Dr Alex Allinson MHK, Minister for the Isle of Man Department for Enterprise, added: “As an international business centre, we rely on good connections to the UK and further afield to give our business community access to clients around the world. Having a day return flight will be a real asset for both Isle of Man and London-based businesses.”
