Watchdog says CityWing loss is "real blow" for air passengers

Mon, 13 Mar 2017

A travel watchdog says the loss of CityWing is a "real blow" for the Island's air passengers.

Travelwatch Isle of Man describes the operator as reliable and punctual before its recent difficulties.

The virtual airline was forced to go into liquidation last week after the airline that operated its routes was grounded.

Travelwatch has expressed concern over the loss of the CityWing routes, particularly the services to Scotland, claiming passengers who used the route often did so on a regular basis.

Eastern Airways have already taken over the Belfast City and Newcastle routes, but there has been no announcement over the future of the Gloucester, Glasgow and Blackpool services.
