Loganair Introduce Extra Flights As Demand For New Norwich/isle Of Man Service Soars

The new route – East Anglia’s first ever direct link to the Isle of Man – will take to the skies on Saturday, May 26.

Flybe franchise partner Loganair, which celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2012, plans to run seasonal flights every Saturday from May 26 through to September 8.

However, a surge in ticket uptake for the service from leisure and business passengers has led the airline to add an extra two flights for the successive Saturdays up to September 22.

The new non-stop service will operate on Saturdays, leaving Norwich at 3:10pm and with return flights leaving the Isle of Man at 4:50pm.   Fares start from £59.99 one-way including all taxes.

There are also other convenient connections between Norwich and the Isle of Man available via Manchester throughout the week.

Commenting on the move, Loganair’s chief operating officer Jonathan Hinkles, said: “We announced the new Norwich-Isle of Man service only three months ago, but demand for the new flights has far exceeded our expectations.   

“With flights on several dates throughout the summer nearly fully booked and more people still wanting to travel, we’ve responded to this demand by adding extra flights through September.”

Services from Norwich to Manchester and the Isle of Man are operated by Loganair’s subsidiary Suckling Airways, using a 31-seat Dornier 328 fast turboprop under a franchise agreement with Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline.

Andrew Bell, Chief Executive of Norwich International Airport, said “We are delighted that Loganair has reacted to the high demand for the flights to the Isle of Man from Norwich International.

“We hope that the local travellers will continue to take advantage of this opportunity to visit this wonderful destination.”
