EasyJet plan IoM route for expanded Heathrow

Thu, 27 Oct 2016

EasyJet plans to introduce a route between the Isle of Man and Heathrow once the London airport's third runway is built.

The budget airline, which already flies to three destinations from Ronaldsway, wants to bring in 19 new routes when Heathrow's capacity is increased.

The new routes would mean 30,000 to 55,000 more flights for the Airline, taking up 7% of the new slots on offer at the expanded Heathrow.

EasyJet would use the new runway for a number of British routes, including the Isle of Man, Jersey and several Scottish cities, as well as European destinations like Amsterdam and Geneva.

The UK Government backed plans for a third runway at Heathrow earlier this week.

Flybe, which also operates several Manx routes, has also expressed an interest in flying to Ronaldsway from Heathrow.

The Island has been without a direct link to the UK's busiest airport since British Airways bought out Manx Airlines in 2002.
