Eastern Airways has announced a new route from Glasgow to the Isle of Man, less than two weeks after securing the future of the island’s routes to Northern Ireland and North East England.

The UK regional airline, which moved quickly on Monday 13 March 2017 to provide a continuation of links to the Isle of Man from Belfast City and Newcastle, following Citywing’s liquidation, will now offer a daily weekday link from Scotland with a new Glasgow service.

The Glasgow service will be introduced from Tuesday 2 May 2017, using a 29-seat Jetstream 41 aircraft.

Monday to Thursday flights will leave Glasgow at 2.50pm arriving in the Isle of Man at 3.40pm.  Services from the Isle of Man will depart at 1.30pm, landing in Glasgow at 2.20pm.

Friday services depart Glasgow at 9.35am, arriving in the Isle of Man at 10.45am.  Flights leave the Isle of Man at 8.15am, landing in Glasgow at 9.05am.

The Glasgow flights are also on sale for the popular Isle of Man TT races, which run over a fortnight period from Friday 26 May to Monday 12 June 2017.

Fares start from £59 one way, including taxes and charges and are bookable via , calling Eastern Airways on 08703 669100 or through your travel agent.  Complimentary drinks are provided on board the flights.

Mathew Herzberg, Head of Commercial for Eastern Airways, said: “Our aim has been to protect vital routes from the Isle of Man and we are now pleased to be back in Glasgow linking the island again, and we will also explore further opportunities.  In addition the timing enables us to offer a direct service from Scotland over the busy Isle of Man TT period so motorsport and TT fans won’t miss out.”

Passengers flying with the airline are not charged for check-in, baggage or choice of seat.  Hold baggage allowance is 15kg per person and hand luggage allowance is 10kg per person.  Those with fully flexible tickets are entitled to 2x 23kg hold bags.  Check-in opens 90 minutes before the flight, and closes just 30 minutes before the departure time.

Eastern Airways has been operating for 19 years, and previously operated scheduled services from Glasgow Airport between 2011 and 2013.  It has a fleet of two Embraer 170 and three Embraer 145 jets, as well as nine Saab 2000s and is the largest operator in the world of Jetstream 41 aircraft with 17.
