Both the London City and Heathrow routes
will be flown under Loganair’s codeshare
agreement with British Airways.

Jonathan Hinkles, Chief Executive Officer, Loganair, said:

We’re absolutely delighted that the Isle of Man’s airline is restoring island-based connectivity to London – serving not just one but two major airports. Our conveniently timed flights to London City will offer excellent connectivity to the heart of London for both business and leisure travellers, whilst our London Heathrow services will complement that access to London itself with the broadest possible range of onward connecting flights with our partner airlines to over 100 destinations worldwide.

He added:

Today’s announcement also provides further benefits for the Isle of Man with robust, stable employment in the aviation sector. We’re delighted to welcome new members to the Loganair IOM team this week, and we’ll continue our programme to invest in training, career development and apprenticeships.

The new services will be flown by Loganair’s
Isle of Man-based team of pilots, cabin crew
and engineers. The airline now has over 30
staff based at Ronaldsway who also support
existing Loganair routes to Liverpool,
Manchester, Birmingham and Edinburgh.

Further Isle of Man-based pilots and cabin
crew have joined Loganair this week – many
formerly employed by Flybe and Stobart Air
before the collapse of both airlines – to
commence their training onto the 72-seat
ATR72-600 aircraft deployed by Loganair on
its Isle of Man routes.

Dr Alex Allison MHK, Minister for the Isle of
Man Department for Enterprise, commented:

We are very pleased to be working with Loganair on these two new London routes to City and Heathrow. As an international business centre, we rely on good connections to the UK and further afield to give our business community access to clients around the world. Having a day return flight will be a real asset for both Isle of Man and London-based businesses. The Isle of Man is also the perfect spot for a short break or family holiday, and I hope these new routes will bring new and improved connectivity not only for Isle of Man residents but for visitors too!

Richard Hill, Chief Commercial Officer, London City Airport, said:

We are delighted to be welcoming back a regular service between London City and the Isle of Man with Loganair. Regional connectivity, and regular, reliable connections to the heart of London has never been more important, and we look forward to working with partners to both promote the service to businesses and to passengers who are planning their next staycation.

Meanwhile, Loganair recently expanded its codeshare agreement with British Airways.
