Heathrow Air Route AXED

Wed, 08 May 2019

The Isle of Man to London Heathrow route is to cease on October 26th (2019).

FlyBe has published their Winter Timetable and the Manx route to the UK's biggest air hub has been axed.

Energy FM News contacted FlyBe who told us:

"‘Flybe is closely monitoring customer demand for this new route added to its 2019 Summer schedule, to assess the possibility of exploring any opportunities which may arise that could support a longer term commitment at some point in the future’.

We do not know what 'some point in the future' actually means, but for now, the long awaited flagship destination of London Heathrow is on borrowed time and is almost certainly not going to feature in the Winter Timetable, beyond October 26th.
