London Oxford Airport welcomes Manx2.com’s first scheduled flights to Jersey and the Isle of Man.

Wednesday 9th May 2012

Daily flights from London Oxford Airport to Jersey and the Isle of Man got off to an excellent start yesterday (08 May) as the airport welcomed the first scheduled services to the island destinations.


Manx2.com reports that its Oxford route is outselling its Leeds route by four seats to one with some 2,000 seats booked to date. Forward bookings to both destinations are very strong with the Isle of Man seeing a peak in bookings coinciding with the world-renowned motorcycle TT races, which start later this month.


Manx2.com has pledged year-round services on the routes with lead in fares starting at just £49.95 to the Isle of Man and £54.95 to Jersey (one-way including taxes) with no credit card charges or booking fees to pay and an allowance of up to 10kg for hand luggage. Together with airport parking at £7.50 per day (£35.00 per week) the offerings represent extremely good value short breaks.

Chris Orphanou, Managing Director of London Oxford Airport, said: "The launch of these two new daily scheduled services from Oxford gives us the opportunity to showcase the world-class facilities we have here. The combination of London Oxford's strategic location, together with its great road, rail and bus links, makes it the ideal gateway for both business and leisure travel. We are delighted that Manx2.com has recognised the benefits of London Oxford Airport and we've recently recruited five new terminal staff as a consequence of the new flights being established."


David Buck, Manx2.com's Managing Director, said: "Our new routes to the Isle of Man and Jersey, via London Oxford Airport, demonstrate our commitment to keeping the UK's island communities connected and provide our passengers with the perfect opportunity to travel through a first-class, uncongested airport."
