Flybe cancels new flights to and from Isle of Man

Blaming delays with planned aircraft deliveries

Flybe has cancelled its new winter schedule to and from the Isle of Man.

It’s blamed ‘further delays’ with deliveries of Havilland Dash-8 400 aircraft.

The airline was due to start routes on 30 October but has now cancelled flights scheduled to and from London Heathrow and Belfast City.

A statement from the airline said: ‘Flybe deeply regrets the inconvenience that will be caused to passengers affected by this decision.

“The airline will provide full refunds, as well as applicable compensation, to all those impacted by these unexpected cancellations.”

Passengers can claim refunds by following the link provided in cancellation emails which are being sent to them.

MHK Tim Glover has political responsibility for ports within the Department of Infrastructure. 

He told Manx Radio the decision had ‘come out of the blue’ to him: 

Manx Radio requested an interview with Flybe - the request was declined.
