Airlines still don't appreciate Island lifeline routes

Gatwick offering 'disappointing'

Airlines such as EasyJet don't have an appreciation of the importance of flights for people living on the Island.

That's the view of passenger watchdog TravelWatch.

It says it's disappointed by the Gatwick schedule for the first half of 2017 and group spokesman Mike Bathgate says he still doesn't believe airlines have an appreciation of the importance of lifeline routes for Island communities.
