From 30 October, flybe will offer flights to the Isle of Man from Belfast City six days a week.

Visitors to the Celtic nation will be able to enjoy its unique coastal scenery, whilst residents of the Isle of Man will receive better connectivity with the island’s two neighbouring capitals.

Dave Pflieger, Flybe’s CEO said:  “The entire team at Flybe are thrilled to announce our continued growth and an enhanced winter schedule that not only reflects the expansion of our fleet and network within Great Britain and Northern Ireland, but also into Europe. And, we are even more proud of the fact that our new airline will be providing Isle of Man, Belfast, and other key customers with additional travel options and even more great value offerings — especially now, when they are needed most to help connect to loved ones, experiences, and destinations that matter most this winter and holiday season.”

Isle of Man Airport’s Director, Gary Cobb, said:  “We are very happy to welcome flybe to the Island and the routes show the continued strength of the recovery to the aviation industry and passenger volumes to our airport. We believe these routes will add choice and flexibility of which can only be of benefit to the Island – something which I know is welcomed, based on customer feedback.”
