Manx2.com is now offering greater flexibility to business and leisure passengers using its London Oxford and Isle of Man routes.
It is also adding additional flights during December for shoppers keen to take advantage of the Christmas markets at Blenheim Palace and the seasonal bargains and special events at Bicester Village, the UK’s ultimate designer shopping destination.
The airline’s winter timetable includes earlier departure and arrival times for passengers travelling to and from the UK on Mondays and Thursdays, but with later flights on Fridays and Sundays. The changes come into effect on Monday 29th October, with prices starting from £49.95.
David Buck, Manx2.com’s managing director, said the new schedule was tailored to Islanders looking to enjoy a weekend break as well as business travellers staying overnight.
Flights from Jersey to London Oxford will now leave at 11:35hrs on a Thursday, arriving at 12:45hrs, with the return flight departing at 14:45hrs the following day, landing back in Jersey at 15:55hrs.
“We have moved back the Friday and Sunday services so Jersey passengers can now fly out late afternoon on the Friday, returning 48 hours later,” said Mr Buck.
“It also improves the options for business and leisure visitors from Oxford and the Isle of Man,” he added.
The new route between Jersey and London Oxford Airport was introduced in May this year and has already brought several thousand visitors to Jersey, giving a much-needed boost to the Island’s economy.
As well as providing Jersey residents with a new gateway to London and the West End, avoiding the Gatwick congestion, it also opens an easy and convenient route to the Midlands and Thames Valley.
The four days a week service connects directly through Oxford onto the Isle of Man, improving transport links between the two Crown Dependencies.
Manx2.com is also offering additional flights on the Isle of Man-London Oxford-Jersey route during the run up to Christmas and the New Year to coincide with the Christmas markets and designer shopping on offer in and around Oxford.
