Isle Of Man / Ellan Vannin

Norwich flights for Isle of Man

A new flight route between Norwich and the Isle of Man has been announced for Summer 2012.

Flybe franchise carrier Loganair will run the weekly East Anglian service.

Return flights will operate between the island and Norwich each Saturday between 26 May until 8 September.

The move comes in the wake of figures revealing that 13 out of the 18 scheduled routes from Ronaldsway Airport in December 2011 saw an increase in passengers.

The Isle of Man government is hoping to see more growth, especially in charter traffic which increased by 30% in 2011.
