Eastern Airways to launch Glasgow-Isle of Man connection
Eastern Airways has announced a new route from Glasgow to the Isle of Man, less than two weeks after securing the future of the island’s routes to Northern Ireland and north-east England.
The UK regional airline, which moved earlier this month to provide a continuation of links to the Isle of Man from Belfast City and Newcastle, following Citywing’s liquidation, will now offer a daily weekday link from Scotland with a new Glasgow service.
The Glasgow service will be introduced from Tuesday, May 2nd, using a 29-seat Jetstream 41 aircraft.
Monday to Thursday flights will leave Glasgow at 14:50 arriving in the Isle of Man at 14:40.
Services from the Isle of Man will depart at 13:30, landing in Glasgow at 14:20.
Friday services depart Glasgow at 09:35, arriving in the Isle of Man at 10.45.
Flights leave the Isle of Man at 08:15, landing in Glasgow at 09:05.
The Glasgow flights are also on sale for the popular Isle of Man TT races, which run over a fortnight period from May 26th.
Mathew Herzberg, head of commercial for Eastern Airways, 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.
“In addition the timing enables us to offer a direct service from Scotland over the busy Isle of Man TT period so motorsport and TT fans won’t miss out.”
Eastern Airways has been operating for 19 years, and previously operated scheduled services from Glasgow Airport between 2011 and 2013.
