Flybe reduce service to only three routes
7th December, 2013
Flybe will fly to only three destinations from the Isle of Man when its cuts are completed next year.
These are Manchester, Liverpool and Birmingham.
The airline this week announced more cuts to routes, which came as another blow following the news that the airline's base at Ronaldsway would close, with the loss of 49 jobs.

The airline will withdraw its four-times-daily service to Gatwick in March after it sold its slots at the London airport to budget airline easyJet.
Announcing its summer timetable (from March 30 to October 25), the airline said it would be withdrawing its routes to Bristol, Luton and Jersey.
It also listed Southampton as a summer route that was being withdrawn – even though it pulled the plug on that service back in July.
Direct flights to Gatwick also end in March after the airline sold its slots at the terminal to budget airline easyJet.
When Flybe closes its base at Ronaldsway, the island could lose its early morning flights.
