The airline currently holds a Type B operating licence issued by the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), authorising the company to operate flights with fewer than 20 passengers and/or weighing less than 10 tonnes, which are operated by its three British Aerospace Jetstream 31 aircraft.[3] The airline began operating under its own name on scheduled flights in April 2014, after previously only operating on behalf of Citywing. For 2015, Norwich has been added as a destination from Cardiff, but Belfast flights are no longer bookable.[4]

Accidents and Incidents

  • On 8 March 2012, a BAe Jetstream 31 of Links Air, operating Manx2 Flight 302 from Leeds-Bradford Airport, United Kingdom to Ronaldsway Airport, Isle of Man, departed the runway on landing at Ronaldsway. The aircraft was substantially damaged when the starboard undercarriage collapsed due to corrosion-induced cracking. There were no injuries amongst the twelve passengers and two crew.[6]
  • On 15 August 2014, the aircraft involved in the 2012 accident was damaged at Doncaster-Sheffield airport on a flight from Belfast following the failure of the port undercarriage.[7][6][8] One passenger was taken to hospital for treatment and the airport was shut until the next day.
