New flights between the Isle of Man and Glasgow are set to begin this month, an airline has announced.

Citywing said it plans to operate nine services a week between the island and Scotland "with a view to increasing that number as demand rises".

Isle of Man Chief Minister Allan Bell said it would "stimulate tourism and business on both sides of the water".

He added: "It is particularly pleasing to see the new service in place ahead of the Commonwealth Games."
