New air route links Island with South Yorkshire

 

A UK company has announced plans for a new air route between the Isle of Man and South Yorkshire.

LinksAir says the three-times-a-week service will connect the Island with Doncaster-Sheffield Robin Hood airport for the first time.

The firm's begun advertising flights on its website departing Rondaldsway on a Monday, Friday and Saturday, with all services using a UK-based aircraft and crew.

The company, describing itself as an airline, quotes Isle of Man Director of Ports Ann Reynolds in a news release.

She has greeted the new service as 'welcome news' for leisure travellers or those looking to develop business links between the two regions.
