Blue Islands has further reaffirmed its commitment to its Guernsey – Southampton service as the Channel Islands airline has boosted its schedule with even more flights this summer.
Rob Veron, CEO Blue Islands, said: “Blue Islands is focussed on enriching islanders’ travel options which we believe are essential to the well-being and livelihood of our communities.
“We are proud to have operated our Guernsey – Southampton service since 2007 serving over 800,000 passengers including leisure and business travellers, visitors to our island and sporting customers, as well as providing a reliable, high-frequency service for those travelling for essential medical purposes.”
Blue Islands provides up to 64 weekly flights between Guernsey and Southampton with up to five flights each way per day having scheduled 78 additional flights throughout the summer between 29 June and 26 September on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Customers also enjoy the benefits of Blue Islands’ exclusive Southampton – Waterloo train fare of just £36 anytime return for effortless travel to central London via Southampton with regular fast trains to London Waterloo just metres from the terminal door.
Mr Veron continued: “As well as travelling to the South Coast, customers are increasingly choosing Blue Islands operated Guernsey – Southampton services for easy protected connections to UK and European destinations across the wider Flybe network thanks to Southampton Airport’s single terminal and one booking at flybe.com.
“Additional Southampton flights not only provide greater options for travel to central London and opportunities for onward UK and European connections via Southampton Airport, they enable added convenience and flexibility for those travelling to Southampton to access health services.”
Neil Garwood, Managing Director at Southampton Airport, added: “As one of the most important local airports in the country, regional connectivity is something that we pride ourselves in.
“We welcome Blue Island’s enhanced summer schedule which will provide holidaymakers, businesses, students, families and those in need of essential healthcare on the mainland with further flexibility when travelling between Southampton and the lovely island.”
