It’s due to LaGuardia’s perimeter rule which means other than Saturdays, only short haul flights can operate.

Re: MAN news - 2018

Yet more Ryanair increases.

Firstly, a new route to Catania:

FR9046 MAN 1145 CTA 1500
FR9047 CTA 1525 MAN 1840
Mondays

FR9046 MAN 1700 CTA 2015
FR9047 CTA 2040 MAN 2355
Friday’s

That’s 11 new routes for S18 so far.

And Shannon gains 2 weekly flights to make it 6 weekly.
