- Flybe saw its franchise carrier Loganair launch a new route out of Norwich (NWI) in eastern England on 26 May when the airline launched a weekly Saturday service to Isle of Man (IOM) in the Irish Sea. Flights are operated seasonally by Suckling Airways’ 31-seat Dornier 328 aircraft until 22 September. Loganair’s COO Jonathan Hinkles said: “Many of our passengers travelling from Norwich to the Isle of Man will be heading there on holiday, so Saturday’s fine weather ensured an ideal start to their travels and for the launch of the new direct service. We have been impressed with the high number of advance ticket sales since we first announced the service in March this year and decided to expand the seasonal dates for the route in light of this.”
