Flybe’s franchise partner Loganair has announced the extension of its Norwich-Isle of Man service until Saturday, 20 October, 2012.
The Saturday service was East Anglia’s first ever direct route to the Irish Sea-based isle when it was launched in May this year.
This is the second time the service has been extended: the flights were originally due to cease on Saturday, 8 September, however, due to demand, Loganair extended the service to 22 September, and now has added a further four weeks with the last flight taking to the skies on Saturday, 20 October.
Commenting on the decision, Loganair’s chief operating officer Phil Preston, said: “We are delighted with the success of the new Norwich-Isle of Man service – demand for the new flights has far exceeded our expectations.
“With flights on several dates throughout the summer nearly fully booked and more people still wanting to travel, we’ve responded to this demand by adding extra flights through October.”
The extended service will depart each Saturday at 12.10pm from Ronaldsway Airport on the Isle of Man, landing in Norwich at 1.30pm. Outbound flights from Norwich International Airport depart at 2pm, landing in the Isle of Man at 3.20pm.
