Loganair (LM/LOG) has taken over another former Flybe route this time in the form of the vital connection between the Isle of Man (IOM/EGNS) and Liverpool (LPL/EGGP).
The twice-daily service will be operated by a Loganair Saab 340 aircraft maintaining essential connectivity for the Island and also to help patients access mainland NHS services.
Jonathan Hinkles Loganair CEO said: “We understand how important this link is to the Isle of Man, and we have worked with the Isle of Man Government to provide this initial interim service. We fully expect to announce an expansion of our services in the coming weeks.
“We are interested in principle in providing a further range of services to and from the Isle of Man, including operating the Liverpool route on a permanent basis and are in advanced talks about restoring the Manchester and Birmingham routes, also lost in the collapse of Flybe.”
Loganair will operate the service from the 12th March 2020.
