Isle of Man-based airline EuroManx is planning to acquire two former Azzurra Air Avro RJ70s. The airline intends to use them primarily on flights from the Isle of Man to London City, which Euromanx will take over from current operator Flybe on 10 January 2005. Euromanx will also fly from the Isle of Man to Southampton, where it will offer connections on Flybe. Flybe will also maintain and support the RJ70s. The move represents a significant expansion for Euromanx, whose flights are currently being operated by Rossair using Beech 1900Ds and ATR42s. Euromanx expects to take delivery of the first RJ70 by mid December and of the second in early March. Both are currently in storage at Exeter.
