Citywing Renews Service from Belfast to Isle of Man and Blackpool

Citywing Renews Service from Belfast to Isle of Man and Blackpool

Following the sudden closure of Blackpool Airport last October, Citywing and the airport owners worked to ensure that commercial flights could commence once again between Belfast City Airport and the Isle of Man and Blackpool – and they will from 1st April 2015. Blackpool

 

David Buck, Managing Director at Citywing, 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 Isle of Man also has a wide range of attractions to offer, from museums, galleries and eateries to its beautiful beaches and breathtaking mountaintop views.

“Fares between Belfast and the Isle of Man start from £29.95 each way, and flights between Belfast and Blackpool via the island are available from £54.95 each way.

“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 Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man and North-West England.”
