It was indeed an old Flybe route. It will also complement their IOM flights from LPL and compete with Loganair who stepped into the breach after Flybe’s collapse.
Do we know timings for these flights yet? I know from LPL they’re random depending on the day, but on some days they operate twice daily.

App suggests they wanted 5 weekly with Wed and Sun also highlighted as flying days, but no flights bookable on them yet.
Will this be an A319? If I recall correctly the Douglas runway is long enough for upto 757/A321 sized aircraft
IOM runway is 6,923ft according to Wikipedia and will be no issue for Airbus narrowbodies, especially for short hops to LPL and MAN. For what it’s worth, I’ve been on LPL-IOM flights on A319 and A320ceo and my last flight to IOM in October last year was on an A320neo.
