Manx flights won't be affected by BA strike

Thu, 15 Dec 2016

Air passengers travelling between the Isle of Man and London City Airport in the run up to Christmas won't be affected by a cabin crew strike.

The Unite union announced plans for British Airways cabin crew to take industrial action from December 21st over what it calls the poverty pay its workers receives from the airline.

However, the airline has confirmed the action won't affect the Cityflyer services, which includes the Ronaldsway route.

Only members of the mixed fleet - which work on Heathrow routes - will strike if BA don't hold talks with Unite before the 21st.

BA has been providing flights between Ronaldsway and London City since March 2014.
