Airline easyJet has apologised for the cancellation of its flights between Ronaldsway and Manchester, but said the route will be re-established later this year.

The airline has dropped the Ronaldsway to Manchester route from its schedule for the next few months.

A spokesman told Gef that the decision was part of its ‘pre-emptive cancellations for the summer’ as the travel industry struggles to get back to pre-pandemic levels.

He said that while flights will not operate from July 1 through October, the service ‘will recommence at the start of November.’

The spokesman added: ‘We are very sorry for the inconvenience this will cause. We are informing customers directly in advance to minimise the impact on their plans and providing the option to receive a refund or voucher, or rebook for free to a later date, and our customer service hours have been extended to support affected customers. easyJet remains absolutely focused on our daily operation and continues to monitor this very closely.’
