Scotland air route deal imminent

Tue, 14 Mar 2017

The Infrastructure Minister says plans to restore an air route between the Isle of Man and Scotland are being finalised.

No operator has stepped in to take over the Glasgow route since CityWing announced it was going into liquidation last week, leaving Ronaldsway without a direct connection to Scotland.

Ray Harmer confirmed in this morning's sitting of the House of Keys that further announcements should come in the next few days, with a deal to resume flights to Scotland imminent.

The Minister also revealed the Belfast City flights will go back to twice daily with some weekend services by the end of the month.

Two of the virtual airline's five routes have already been taken over by Eastern Airways, but the future of the Blackpool and Gloucester routes remains uncertain.
