Flybe launches new flights to Isle of Man

Flybe will launch flights from Belfast City to the Isle of Man from October 30

REGIONAL carrier Flybe has begun selling flights from Belfast City Airport to the Isle of Man, with fares starting from £29.99.

From 30 October, it will offer flights to the Isle of Man from Belfast City six days a week and from London Heathrow five days a week.

Visitors will be able to enjoy its unique coastal scenery, while residents of the Isle of Man will receive better connectivity with the island's two neighbouring capitals.

Flybe chief executive Dave Pflieger said: “Our continued growth and an enhanced winter schedule not only reflects the expansion of our fleet and network within Great Britain and Northern Ireland, but also into Europe.

“We are even more proud of the fact that our new airline will be providing Isle of Man, Belfast, and other key customers with additional travel options and great value, especially now when they are needed most to help connect everyone to loved ones, experiences, and destinations that matter most this winter and holiday season.”

Isle of Man airport's director Gary Cobb added: “We are very happy to welcome flybe to the island and the routes show the continued strength of the recovery to the aviation industry and passenger volumes to our airport.”
