Rishi has cut domestic air passenger duty by 50% to £6.50.

 

Wonder if Ashford will follow suit?

Can’t see IOMG cutting it, they are too dependent on the taxes. They are also in thrall to the green lobby, Daphne, Manx Labour Party and Facebookers, who seem to think that now there are new MHKs they are calling the shots - and they are terrified.

In the same vein, a reduction in ADP may help towards making travel to the island a bit cheaper.

Well they are certainly intent on keeping aircraft movements, particularly smaller ones to a minimum now that winter and SW strong winds are prevalent ! A runway which was originally notamed to open on the 29th August is now notamed closed until the 30th November ! Great move at this time of year, whilst we are purging DOI can we please purge the muppets out of the airport !

FFS large airports can resurface in a matter of hours, surely months is not asking too much !

Who knows, why does everything take so long ? The friggin prom, flumes etc etc the whole thing smacks of total incompetence ! Mind you rumour has it the russian clown wants to close the cross runway altogether, gonna be entertaining when even moderately sized stuff can't get in !!

Weren't the DOI blowing their own trumpet a few weeks ago about this being finished on time?
