In April we reported that Scottish airline Loganair was serving London Heathrow for the first time, with its Isle of Man route operating on behalf of BA Cityflyer.
However it was only a temporary move, caused by the closure of London City Airport, and so the route reverted to LCY some time later.
This week Loganair announced it was switching the route back to Heathrow effective December 1.
Loganair’s MD Jonathan Hinkles told Business Traveller:
“The transfer of our service to Heathrow was made at the request of the Isle of Man government.
“Operating this route during the winter months, we believe, will allow for growth of frequency and improved business travel times when the impact of Covid-19 begins to lessen.”
Loganair will initially operate one flight (timed to connect with a number of long-haul departures) daily except Saturday.
A Saturday service will be added from December 19.
