'Business as usual' for Manx Flybe routes

Ports member welcomes takeover of regional airline

It's business as usual for Ronaldsway's Flybe routes and the patient transfer service.

That's the message from Tim Baker MHK, who has political responsibility for the Island's ports.

It was announced yesterday [Friday] that a consortium including Virgin Atlantic and the Stobart Group has purchased the regional airline.

Mr Baker says this provides security for those flying to and from the Island.
