Flybe flights, Manchester to Manston cancelled

My flights to Manston in July 11 were cancelled due to commercial reasons.

We are going for a wedding and booked early so it is a real pain.

Anyone know why and if they wil suddenly start again?

Not good news. I was away last week so didn't hear anything about this, so have trawled the local media and found they have replaced the Manchester - Manston route with a new Belfast - Manston route.

kentonline.co.uk/kentonline/news/2011/march/…

And this bulletin from the airport itself:

manstonairport.com/news-and-events/new-belfa…

Though nothing on flybe.com, although if you try to book it comes up with No Flights after 3 April

Says the Manchester route wasn't economically viable. Since commercial flights started at Manston they've had financial problems so I was surprised when they announced the Manchester route but heard reports that ticket sales were quite good but obviously not. So no, it doesn't look like it will start again. Hope you can get something else sorted
