EuroManx: Another small air carrier folds

EuroManx Dash-8EuroManx, a small airline based on the Isle of Mann, ceased operations several days ago. A message posted on the EuroManx website on May 9, 2008 explained:
For the past 5 years EuroManx has focused on providing a locally based operation offering high quality schedules and services dedicated to the Isle of Man.

During this time the employees have worked hard to develop and grow the business but over the last 6 months a number of factors including rising fuel prices and reduced passenger numbers have proved to be insurmountable obstacles to the airline being able to continue to operate.
EuroManx, which had been in business since August 2002, operated Dash-8 aircraft on flights between the Isle of Man and Belfast City, Liverpool, London City and Manchester airports.
