Simon Lilley, Flybe’s Director of Marketing says: “Flybe is committed to developing further its route network out of both our Isle of Man and Southampton bases. We have every confidence that the return of this new service will be supported by both business and leisure passengers.”
Dave Lees, Southampton Airport Managing Director, comments, “We’re delighted to see the return of this service. We know there is a demand for a regular service from local businesses, especially those in the financial services sector, but we are also expecting the route to be popular with those on the Isle of Man joining cruises in Southampton, and leisure passengers from the South.”
