Manx and the Welsh flyer

MANX2 has taken over the PSO (public service obligations) service between Cardiff to Anglesey following the bankruptcy of the former operator Highland Airways.  Manx2 is not an actual airline and could probably be best described as a ticketing agency or marketing arrangement with the German company FLM Aviation and Czech carrier VanAir, both of whom have an Air Operator's Certificate (AOC), enabling them to carry fare paying passengers on scheduled services.  This was the way that easyJet started, Air Foyle the legal operator back in 1997.  EU legislation allows for the current situation.  Based on the Isle of Man, Manx2 has a fleet of three Dornier 228s, three LET 410s and a single BAe Jetstream.  Hubbing from the island it serves a variety of destinations including Belfast City, Blackpool and East Midlands.
