CityWing drops Newcastle flights after failing to find aircraft

CityWing will be dropping its Newcastle route for the rest of its winter timetable after failing to find an aircraft to cover the service.

The firm has been chartering in planes from Polish carrier Sprint Air after Van Air, which had been operating its flights, was grounded following an incident involving a flight between Belfast and the Isle of Man during Storm Doris.

CityWing has now confirmed its timetable up until March 25th, when its summer schedule is due to start.

Sprint Air will continue to operate the Blackpool, Glasgow, Gloucester and Belfast routes, but CityWing couldn't secure a plane to continue its Newcastle flights, so all flights there have been cancelled.

An announcement about the summer services will be made in the next week.

Full details of the new times for flights until March 25th can be found on CityWing's Facebook page.
