Blue Islands launch services to Jersey and Guernsey

Channel Islands based airline, Blue Islands, today announce their plans to fly direct from Bournemouth to Jersey, with onward connections to Guernsey. Flights will begin on 1st November and fares will start from 59 including all taxes and charges. Bookings can be made now at www.blueislands.com

Blue Islands are the airline with ‘a welcome difference.’ The truly unique policies pioneered by Blue Islands allow passengers to book flights without having to worry about any hidden charges whatsoever. No charges to carry baggage or for excess baggage, no charges to book using a debit or credit card, and free changes to tickets (names and flights) provide a refreshing change to all passengers on all flights.

The airline will offer flights three times a week to Jersey, meaning the beauty and tranquillity of the Channel Islands are only 50 minutes away. Guernsey is then a short 15 minute flight away.

Rob Veron, Managing Director of Blue Islands is pleased to see these popular routes return to the ever expanding Blue Islands network. “I’m delighted that we now have the availability to offer these Channel Island services to passengers travelling from Bournemouth Airport. I look forward to welcoming new passengers from Bournemouth and the surrounding areas to enjoy the Blue Islands welcome difference. We believe in clear, honest and transparent pricing coupled with excellent customer service which is hugely popular with our passengers.

He added: “Jersey and Guernsey are the ideal short break destinations – stunning views, cliff walks, fabulous restaurants and hotels, not to mention the tax free shopping.”

Founded in 2006, Blue Islands connects the Channel Islands to a number of UK and European destinations including Zurich, Geneva, the Isle of Man, London City, Bristol, Southampton, Manchester and now Bournemouth.

Rob Goldsmith, Managing Director of Bournemouth Airport said: “I am, of course, delighted to see that Blue Islands will be returning to Bournemouth Airport. Flights to and from the Channel Islands have always been popular and I’m confident that this new service will prove equally attractive to those living in the Channel Islands and here on the south coast.”
