There will be a full announcement later today, but basically, anyone from within the Common Travel Area who has had two jabs of an approved vaccine, and two weeks have elapsed since the second one, can enter the Island, from 28th June, with minimal formality. IOM residents can go in the opposite direction on the same basis. People who don't meet these criteria must follow the current rules i.e. family members, new residents only, with isolation until a negative test. There will inevitably be some 'small print' but that's the gist of it.

These changes should see some uptick in air travel, but it's clearly hard to quantify. Depending on what happens in the UK, in the coming weeks, this should only be a fairly short term, interim step.

EZY showing schedules restarted to The Rock from 28/6, I know that doesn't mean alot but if things pan out there could be a surge in bookings thus price rises so now could be a good time to get a booking in!

Start up in a loose term! If you look there are currently no Liverpool flights on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday and no Gatwick on a Tuesday for a couple of weeks or Saturday for 3 weeks. Given they have aircraft sat idle all over the place it really demonstrates their 'commitment to the island'!

Yes, & genuinely not trying to rub salt in, EZY are operating multiple flights into Jersey, sometimes ten a day. However, they did start in a small way & gradually built up. I hope the same goes for the IoM.

Even during good times those services were rarely full. Your traditional primart customer makes a long weekend or goes by boat.
Can't see much Stag & Hen traffic or connecting to Benidorm for for a while yet. EZY will know the demand and if it does pick up then will be able to turn the tap on. Almost everything is running at a loss currently, unless they want to use to route to give pilots hours.

Apparently Easy wanted more flights but Menzies haven’t got any staff to handle them so they had to delay things even more

We need politicians to allow the public in without restrictions. Until they do, the airlines are totally hamstrung. Customers can't book anything with any degree of confidence. Once restrictions are lifted - along with the threat of overnight reimposition - THEN we can criticise the carriers which we feel have not responded as we might like. Till then, keep lobbying the politicians.

Looks like EZY are starting Manchester - Isle of Man flights commencing 1st November 2021. Daily flight (and sometimes twice daily).

The second flight seems to leave at the same time as the first so I think it is still work in progress, (different flight numbers for each though)

If people don't like it they can pay whatever Loganair charge. Simple.

All easyJet aircraft set off between 6am and 7:30am to commence the days flying schedule. It’s a business maximising the amount of flying it can do each day.

Very odd comment the BA/Loganair LCY and LHR fllghts have always been timed for an early morning departure off island and evening return to the island to allow for business travel. The EZY to Manchester is one flight a day and it operates to a different time every single day! Its fine if you want a cheap fare because its a one off flight but not very suitable if you are a regular flyer . Once again EZY dropping a flight in to the IOM as a filler.

It’s an island of around 90,000 people. Not sure why it is expected that Easyjet plan it’s schedule around them? Perhaps they are interested in the mainland market visiting the IOM. If the island wants a different service they should subsidise/support a carrier who will operate it.
