Taken from the news article linked above:

Treasury Minister Alfred Cannan told the Keys that Flybe owed the Department of Infrastructure £303,245 in unpaid landing fees.

He said he was unable to give a figure on how much was owed in air passenger duty as Customs and Excise was waiting submission of the most recent return in respect of that tax.

Mr Cannan said a Flybe Bombardier Dash aircraft with a book value of £4m had been arrested.
Did it come quietly or was it tazered and 'cuffed I wonder?

To answer my own question from yesterday about the interim period of Loganair operating IOM-LPL, Loganair's website is now open for bookings but is only offering flights up until 29th March. It resolves the immediate priority of restarting patient transfers, though obviously the question remains over what happens from 30th March.

I believe the IOM are in talks with Loganair to start Manchester and Birmingham should this happen I think they will start Liverpool on a longer term basis when the negotiations are sorted.

Loganair will be using a Saab 340 on the LPL service during this interim period. Nyxair ES-NSD positioned in from Carlisle this evening to start the service tomorrow.

Whilst this solves the short term issue with regards to the government patient transfer requirements, there are not many seats available for joe public.

I don't know much about the 340's operational capability. Tomorrow's weather isn't looking great, could it be off to a bad start?

Itís coped pretty well with everything the Northern and Western Isles have thrown at it over the last 15 years so it should be ok. Cross wind limit is only slightly less than the 2000.

Meanwhile Stobart's ATR72 EI-GPN sits on the IOM ready to go with a full compliment of crew. The crews are all sitting wondering what is going on. The ATR is a better aircraft for the route with more seats and the Ambilift is able to get the Wheelchair passengers on, not so sure about the lil Saab..

Flew IOM-LPL yesterday evening. Is was operated very professionally in 40kt winds. Quite nice to sit in large leather seats with decent legroom. Only downside was the increased engine noise allied to a very lumpy pattern at LPL. long term, we need a 60 seater on the service.

How busy was it? Assume full due to PTS?

Not full, but apparently full going back to IOM. All the hospital attendees had gone out on the morning flight.
