Isle of Man and Loganair

Loganair is increasing its flights to and from the Isle of Man from July as restrictions on travel to and from the island are progressively eased. 

The airline has already seen a marked increase in bookings as customers plan ahead for the summer and now will expand the Isle of Man schedule by 70% – offering 44 flights per week by the end of July to and from six destinations versus the current 26 flights with three destinations.

The largest increase comes on the flagship Isle of Man – Heathrow route, which will increase to twice daily most days. The airline flies into Terminal 2 and not Terminal 5 for British Airways connections. Loganair’s partnership with BA means a single ticket ensuring through luggage from Teesside to your destination airport.

Flights to Birmingham will commence on Monday 5 July, initially with services on five days each week before gearing up to daily from the beginning of August.  This will mark the restoration of Birmingham flights which have been absent since the collapse of Flybe shortly before the Covid-19 pandemic last March.

Edinburgh services will also begin on Monday 5 July, resuming the popular link to Scotland’s capital which has been a long-standing Loganair route.  There will be three flights each week – Monday, Friday and Sunday – with further increases planned later in the season.  Direct flights between the Isle of Man and Jersey will operate every Saturday from 3 July.

Commenting on the expansion, Kay Ryan, Chief Commercial Officer, Loganair, said: “We’re delighted to be building upon the record of service that Loganair has established in the Isle of Man during the pandemic through this significant increase in flights now that travel restrictions have started to ease.  This is one of several steps to re-build the Isle of Man’s air services to full strength, which we’re committed to taking over the coming weeks and months as we hopefully leave the Covid-19 pandemic behind us.  Loganair’s commitment to serving island communities – honed over nearly 60 years of flying in Scotland – coupled to our locally-based team and our wide range of partnerships with international airlines – mean that we genuinely can be the local airline with a global reach."
