Flybe services between Ireland West Airport Knock and the UK cities of Birmingham, Edinburgh and Manchester will continue to operate as normal, after ministers agreed on Tuesday night to a rescue deal to keep the airline flying.

The package of measures include a potential loan and / or the possible short-term deferral of an air passenger duty bill, and a pledge to review taxes on domestic flights.

Ireland West Airport Knock has welcomed the announcement, as Flybe provides over 100,000 seats annually between Knock and the UK.

The airport says it will ensure that regional connections will not only continue, but will flourish in the years to come.
