FLYBE FLIES TO THE RESCUE OF IOM FERRY PASSENGERS

Leading regional airline offers special limited ‘walk-up’ fares for ferry passengers unable to travel to and from Isle of Man by sea


Flybe, the UK’s Number One Domestic airline, is offering a special limited time ‘walk-up’ fare on its Liverpool and Manchester flights to any ferry passengers wanting to travel to and from Liverpool and Manchester who may be unable to use the services because of  ongoing operational difficulties.
 
The reduced one way ‘rescue’ fare of £75 on Flybe’s Liverpool flights and £65 to and from Manchester  also includes one free bag. Tickets are available for purchase at Flybe ticket desks only in Liverpool, Manchester and Isle of Man airports for travel from today through to Sunday December 18th  to those holding a reservation for ferry travel that has been cancelled or delayed. Regular web and call centre fares still apply for those wishing to book online in advance.

Andrew Strong, MD Flybe UK says: “We are pleased to be able to come to the rescue of those ferry passengers who have been delayed, disrupted or for whom travel is uncertain. We appreciate that any travel disruption causes distress at the best of times but during December is particularly inconvenient. Flybe is committed to keeping Britain on the move during this challenging period and we want travellers to know that they have an affordable and convenient option to continue their planned travel.”
 
Flybe has a choice of up to four return flights a day to and from the Isle of Man and Liverpool; and up to five return flights each day to and from Manchester, in total operating  34 flights between the Isle of Man and the UK today alone.
