British Airways has confirmed it will resume a daily weekday service between the Isle of Man and London City Airport, the Manx government says.
During Tynwald's December sitting, the island's infrastructure minister said the airline has established plans to step-up its Manx service.
David Cretney said the company will begin three flights a day between the island and London from March 2014.
The new service coincides with the end of Flybe's Gatwick service.
In May, Flybe announced an end to its direct Isle of Man-Gatwick flights from April, 2014 after the company sold its slots at the London airport to Easyjet for £20m.
Flybe currently operates 26 flights per week to Gatwick from the island's Ronaldsway airport. They will continue until 29 March 2014.
BA currently offers three weekend flights between the Isle of Man and London City Airport.
