Air routes to Island during pandemic costing millions

Figures to keep flights operating released

Isle of Man Government has paid out just shy of £3.3 million to support air routes to the Island during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The cost of underwriting the same operations is put at nearly £3.4 million.

The figures are to the end of November and are in a Tynwald written answer to a question from Ramsey MHK Lawrie Hooper.

The Department of Infrastructure says it hasn't supported airlines before the Coronavirus period.
