Citywing’s first flights took off today following the management buyout of Manx2.com at the end of 2012, led by Managing Director David Buck with colleagues Phil Cowin, Judith Musgrave and Andy Mathieson – who have a total combined experience in excess of 100 years in the aviation industry.
Citywing is based in the Isle of Man and staffed by Isle of Man employees, with Island resident owners and directors, the changeover sees the previous branding replaced by the new company name Citywing.
Managing Director, David Buck: ‘All flight schedules and timings remain exactly the same All existing bookings with Manx2.com have been automatically and seamlessly transferred to Citywing.
‘Today marks the beginning of an exciting venture for the management team and we’re delighted to have invested in this Manx business, supported by our Chairman, Noel Hayes. We are fiercely proud of both our Manx roots and our Manx routes, and will continue to grow and develop key Isle of Man gateways including Blackpool, Belfast, Gloucester (M5) and Newcastle, supporting and promoting the Isle of Man economy wherever possible.
‘Our new logo reflects our Manx heritage and is based around a stylisation of the famous Manx Shearwater. Our new Citywing branding reflects our plans to further extend the reach of our community-connecting services to other city-to-city routes outside the Isle of Man and is of more direct relevance to our broader activities, including the Cardiff-Anglesey and Gloucester-Jersey routes.
