British Airways will operate up to 27 weekly return flights on its London City-Isle Of Man route next summer.
The carrier flew 19 weekly services between the two airports this summer.
It currently rosters a 50-seat Saab 2000 aircraft on the route. However, some of the extra services in summer 2016 will be operated by Embraer 170 aircraft, increasing capacity by up to 50 per cent.
BA will operate an extra 14 frequencies from London City next summer, including a 50 per cent increase in capacity to Dusseldorf using Embraer 190 jets (see news, November 12).
Luke Hayhoe, BA’s general manager commercial and customer at LCY, said: “We are doing what we told our customers on the Isle of Man we would do, growing and improving our schedule to London.
“We are delighted to be able to offer up to 3,000 seats a week on well-timed flights that offer the choice of a day return or onward connections.”
