The Infrastructure Minister says contractors working on the new baggage facilities at the Airport know it has to be ready on time.

Work got underway earlier this month on a new system which needs to be operational by early September or Ronaldsway could lose its UK domestic airport status.

It's costing almost £3million to install the new outgoing baggage system, which includes new scanners and a new conveyor belt.

The project was approved in last month's sitting of Tynwald.
