Statement on proposed acquisition of BA Connect by FLYBE 3 November 2006

Transport Minister Phil Braidwood and Chief Executive Ian Thompson are to meet with representatives from Flybe within the next week, following the announcement that it has reached an agreement in principle to acquire BA Connect.

Mr Braidwood explained:

‘We have had initial briefings from both BA Connect and Flybe. However, it is too early to comment on how the acquisition by Flybe will affect the Isle of Man in terms of routes, services and employment.
‘Representatives from Flybe will be in the Island next week and we are looking forward to meeting with them to discuss the acquisition, and Flybe’s proposals for the future.’
