Talking Isle of Man-3

Loganair appear to have gained access to Heathrow once again with services moved from 1st December. Once daily to start with but with more to come according to SeanM1997 on Twitter:

I'm not sure if my understanding is correct on this, but I'm of the impression that the Airport are needing to make significant changes to facilitate Dublin flights going forward due to Brexit. I'm not too sure these changes will be completed and ready for 24th Jan, hopefully they are.

I’m not sure if CTA will continue, if it does continue then they’ll be minimal changes. With the IOM wanting to ‘create’ its own border force maybe their already preparing

These are just currently planned re-start dates. They're not concrete.

Loganair London Heathrow service started today, quicker flight time on an EMB down to London than the ATR taking 25-30 minutes shorter, obviously the IOM-LHR sector will be longer in the future with the holding when the LHR flights pick back up!

Hopefully a positive start to the new route and hopefully a positive future!

Good to see BA agree a codeshare on the Loganair LHR route! It’s just what it needs! Especially when flights and borders get back to normal

flyerguy good find.

I just took a look at that after seeing your post, seems fares are actually cheaper at times on BA's website rather than Loganairs.

Perfect to kill off all hope of a double daily MAN service for the Island.

There's a tweet from SeanM1997 earlier today to say that the route was "loaded in error and should not have been in the system". Quite how that happens, I don't know - but it looks to be a mistake which is being rectified!

Further tweets today that Aurigny don't have GCI-IOM loaded for next summer.

Just looked on EZYs website and the schedule described is still listed. Not the best news for locally based operators nor the crews who are happy with their families living there.

IOM Gov, you've scored another own goal for the IOM with your "Open Skies Policy"

I mean its 3 flights per week in a season EZY likely has the necessary slack to pad out the flights. I don't see it as a detriment to the main route operator or failure of open skies. Frequency will always win on this kind of route.

Guess we will have to see about MAN-IOM EZY if it was an error I'm sure they’d be quick to remove it, it may be there as a slot sitter for MAN for Winter 2021. Since they removed W20 about a month or 2 back, the route has always remained on the EZY website and was expected that flights for W21 would be loaded, if this was an error it wouldn’t be showing at all, so worth waiting and seeing, I can see the route happening at some point but who knows when exactly.

IOM-GCI was based on the ‘corridor’ which is still suspended, when travel re opens then I’m sure people would rather get off to other destinations than GCI/IOM, it was popular because it was convenient. If it doesn’t get better then the route will be back.

It is probably unwise to read too much into airlines' prospective schedules to and from the Isle of Man until the island is fully open to visitors again. We cannot yet know when that will be. Carriers can schedule flights and put tickets on sale when the market reopens. Until then it just fast-tracks another administrative headache of refunds and vouchers. IOM is an attractive destination with pent-up demand from would-be visitors, as well as being home to many islanders for whom desired air travel is not yet a practical option. Interest from airlines hasn't evaporated, but it is up to politicians to lead the way in opening up to business again first. They must take the initiative.

I believe LTN-IOM has been cut as part of a wider culling of routes from the UK

Yes, but the reason this route specifically has been selected for cuts is because they're hamstrung in taking bookings on IOM schedules. The island is effectively closed to visitors TFN. Open-ended. Business will return with predictability of the market.
