Flybe has announced it will reintroduce its service between the Isle of Man and Southampton in the spring.

The Exeter-based airline withdrew the service in February 2012 due to low bookings.

Flybe's Simon Lilley said the firm was "committed to developing its network from both its Isle of Man and Southampton bases".

The airline said the service would operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays from the 1 May.
