    New Isle of Mann route announced

    Originally posted by www.Channelonline.tv
    It's been announced the Channel Island airline Rockhopper will be renamed 'Blue Islands' to improve its holiday image.

    The change takes place this Valentine's day and will coincide with the delivery of Jet-stream aircraft, which will be used on a new Isle of Mann route.

    The new 19-seater propeller planes will operate with 2 pilots and are equipped with the latest in avionics and radar equipment.
    Jetstreams will be a bit more comfortable than the Islander and Trilander aircraft presently operated on the inter-island and Bournemouth routes.

    Their website works as well which is more than I can say for another IOM based airline I can think of.

    Might inspire more confidence in their professionalism if they could spell the name of their destination
    "What you must remember" Flip said "is that nine-tenths of Cattermole's charm lies beneath the surface." Many agreed.

      Actually I think using two Ns to become Mann is the Celtic way of spelling the islands's name, and I know the head of state position is the Lord of Mann (actually the Queen), with 2 Ns. Given that the Channel Islanders tend to be very historically correct and use traditional words themselves then the use of two Ns does not suprise me.

        How is changing its name to 'Blue Islands' going to help improve its holiday image

        IMHO I think 'Blue Islands' is a rubbish name. I much prefer Rockhopper...

          Agreed. Rockhopper was a great name for an airline doing what they do.
