Air Services

The Isle of Man's only airport, Ronaldsway, is located in the south of the island between Castletown and Ballasalla, and serves over 700,000 passengers a year.

It is equipped to international standards of navigational/electronic aids and passenger facilities, and in 2008 the runway was extended by 245 metres (804 ft) out into the Irish Sea. This has enabled the island to facilitate larger aircrafts.
