Blackpool is back!

Post in Isle of Man TT News


Citywing will be reinstating double daily flights between the Isle of Man and Blackpool from 1st April 2015.

Following the sudden closure of Blackpool Airport last October, Citywing and the Airport owners have worked tirelessly to ensure that commercial flights can commence once again between Blackpool and the Isle of Man.

Managing Director at Citywing, David Buck, said: 'We are so pleased by this positive conclusion to our negotiations with Blackpool and that it will be open once again for flights to the Isle of Man and Belfast from 1st April. We have remained committed to seeing this historic and vital air link to Blackpool reopen, and we are hugely satisfied to once again be able to offer this route to our customers.

'We would like to extend our thanks to the UK Civil Aviation Authority and both Airports for their assistance in bringing these discussions and plans to a positive conclusion.

'There is so much to see and do in Blackpool throughout the year. It is also a gateway to the North West and the very popular Lake District, Yorkshire and Cumbria areas.The Island will benefit hugely from this additional North West route as we welcome thousands of visitors from these regions every year.

'Our "Blackpool Hopper" fares start from just £23.95 each way and are bookable online at citywing.com.

'With 14 return journeys each week to choose from, we are delighted that the many thousands of passengers who have flown on this route previously will once again have a cheap and frequent lifeline air link between the communities of the Isle of Man and North-West England.'
