To be fair easyJet using an Airbus twice or three times a week is no substitute for say a daily link on an appropriate sized aeroplane. The IOM has had awfully infrequent connectivity to Belfast in recent years.

The MAN route is still on sale, so I think he may have got mixed up and I’ve been reliably informed that the IOM Airport were made aware by EZY that these flights will be operating (subject to border etc)

I understand BFS and SOU. BHX was always in the plans but with Loganair and Blue Islands agreement you can get to JER via BHX and SOU so unless there going to try it maybe 1x weekly after they saw how many people went to GCI but that was under different circumstances. Blue Islands used to operate IOM-JER but if it is direct then any route right now is good news.

Wonder if there’s any news on EDI as this was increased rapidly by Loganair the few years before this all happened (Pandemic), and maybe a 3x Weekly NCL may work as CityWings have operated it in the past, but with Loganair increasing flights in the Northwest it might seem a good idea.

MAN flights I’ve been told will be IOM crew Operating IOM-MAN-NQY-MAN-IOM.

Let's not forget the Stobart crews too! They are already rated on the ATR

Are they getting more ATR-72’s as they only have two(which are mostly used to Shetland from Aberdeen) plus a freighter. There are more ATR-42’s coming this year.

Is there any indication of when IOM will relax it's border restrictions? They seem to be currently at the highest level.

The IOM is currently in a lockdown, much stricter than the U.K. they keep repeating that border lockdown won’t be eased until the U.K. levels decrease

Lockdown will be eased. It's the borders that will retain some level of restriction

No money to be made in the good times so zero chance unless you wanted to pay a £300 price like the old SI service the Channel Isles.

Picks back up towards the end if the year, looks like easyJet are planning a later running summer season, and may possibly use the aircraft for extra capacity on its routes where it can carry a higher number of people
