There has been disruption of flights to Ronaldsway as a vital piece of runway landing equipment is replaced.

An EasyJet flight had to turn back to Gatwick after the pilot had to abort the landing on Sunday evening and a Loganair flight from Heathrow had to divert to Liverpool.

A third flight, a Loganair service from Liverpool, was cancelled that same day.

The disruption has been caused by the life-expired instrument landing system (ILS) on runway 26 being replaced.

Work started at the end of February and won’t be complete until the first week of April.
