British Airways has announced a new service between the Isle of Man and London City airport.

The airline plans to operate daily week-day flights from 28 May, with more weekend flights expected from June.

The island's only link to City airport came to an end in April when Irish airline Aer Arran pulled out.

A BA spokesman said the service meant easier passenger connections with international destinations including Frankfurt, Zurich and New York.

Isle of Man Airport Director Ann Reynolds said: "I know that Island residents will be very happy to see British Airways back on the Isle of Man, especially on such a vital business link to the City of London."

British Airways stopped operating flights from the Isle of Man five years ago when its regional airline business, BA Connect, was sold to Flybe.
