Glasgow Isle of Man

A new route from Glasgow to the Isle of Man (IoM) has been announced by Eastern Airways, less than two weeks after securing the future of the island’s routes to Northern Ireland and North East England.

The carrier has moved quickly to provide a continuation of links to the IoM from Belfast City and Newcastle, following Citywing’s liquidation (BTN last week) and will offer a daily weekday link with a new Glasgow service from 2 May, using a 29-seat Jetstream 41 aircraft

Eastern head of commercial Matthew Herzberg said: “Our aim has been to protect vital routes from the Isle of Man and we are now pleased to be back in Glasgow linking the island again, and we will also explore further opportunities.”

Passengers flying with Eastern are not charged for check-in, baggage or choice of seat. Hold baggage allowance is 15kg per person and hand luggage allowance is 10kg per person.

Eastern previously operated scheduled services from Glasgow Airport between 2011 and 2013. It has a fleet of two Embraer 170 and three Embraer 145 jets, as well as nine Saab 2000s. It is also the largest operator of Jetstream 41s, with 17.
