Emerald Airways 7 June 2004

From today it will be possible to fly between the Isle of Man and Liverpool on Emerald Airways for less than the price of a ticket on the ferry. Bookings can be made on the Emerald Airways web site

Fares start at only £18.50 each way (which includes all charges and taxes), and they are available on all 5 of Emerald's daily ATP services to Liverpool. Over 20,000 seats are being sold at this low fare.

Commenting on this announcement Mick O'Brien (Chief Executive Officer for Emerald) said:

"At long last the Isle of Man has a genuine low-cost airline offering fantastic value-for-money fares. We were the airline that first brought real low fares to the Island in 1996, and we are now back in style with even lower fares than we sold 5 years ago! As with all low fares we strongly advise everyone to book as early as possible."

Phil Pain (Airport Director) added:

"We are delighted to welcome all moves to cut the price of travel on and off the Island and I'm sure that this move will be popular with residents as well as encouraging more visitors to the Isle of Man. I am confident that there is significant untapped potential demand on this route."

Emerald Airways is based in Liverpool with a fleet of 30 aircraft, the majority of which are freighters, and has recently acquired BAe ATP aircraft from the USA, which carry 64 passengers in comfortable leather seats with immaculate cabin interiors.

Mick O'Brien added:

"Emerald Airways is a long established profitable British airline, and we are conscious of how important it is to offer high quality year-round services between Isle of Man and Liverpool. These fares are available on our web site but can also be booked over the telephone on 0870 850 5400. Telephone bookings carry a £5 supplement. I am also very grateful for the foresight shown by the Isle of Man Government in introducing an incentive scheme to encourage airlines to add much needed extra flights at attractive prices."
