Fly JEM - LPL-IOM-LPL. + Viewing @ IOM

Fri Aug 12, 2005 9:27 pm

Is Fly JEM OK? I ask because its website has a large notice on its booking page saying that it cannot accept bookings.

Does anyone know the rough one-way fare from LPL to IOM or vice-versa?

JEM does operate the ATP on this route, doesn't it?

Also, could someone confirm that A2B uses the SH6 on its BLK-IOM service?

What is the viewing like at IOM from within the terminal, or close thereto?

I thought FlyJEM and Euromanx had some sort of agreement now?

As per A2B website, they currently use an Aerocondor SD360, although the timetable gives "EQV" as the type. Probably because they plan the acquisition of larger aircraft for a new BLK-AMS route. Fares start at 30 GBP + tax.

Emerald has stopped all scheduled flights ("FlyJEM"). The ATP is now wet-leased by Euromanx and Euromanx honours all existing bookings.

I see, thanks.

Yes, I saw SH6 on A2B's website.

Does EuroManx use the ATP on IOM-LPL now? If not, where?

Emerald Airways and FlyJEM has reached an agreement to Euromanx will fly the ATP and DH8 on LPL-IOM routes.

I cannot say anythjing about the Blackpool - IOm route.

According to Amadeus, flights #441 and #443 are currently operated by the ATP, with #401 and #421 as possibilities.

@Pe@rson:
Try to contact user "Skidmarks" ; he should be a reliable source for info about the Isle of Man.

You will need to go onto the Euromanx website to book LPL-IOM, FlyJem have effectivley handed over their share of the route. Be warned, despite promises to the contrary, Euromanx have hiked up the fares way beyond what FlyJem were charging.

Thanks, folks.  

The return fare from LPL to IOM and back is absurdly expensive - between about £120 and £200 - for 2x 30-minute blocks! I would have LOVED to have flown BLK-IOM (SH6; about £49) and then IOM-LPL (ATP; about £90), but the price might result in me not doing so.
