Blue Islands launch extended summer schedule

Blue Islands has recently extended its on-sale schedule for next summer to cover the whole of the summer school holiday period for 2021.

With the extension, Channel Islanders can now plan and book their travel choosing the airline’s Blue Plus fare which includes flexibility, seat choice and a two-suitcase allowance as standard.

In Summer 2021 Blue Islands will operate direct services from Jersey to Southampton, Birmingham, East Midlands, Bristol, Exeter, Newquay and Guernsey. Southampton and Guernsey will be served up to five times a day, with twice a day services in the peak season to Birmingham. Services to Bristol, Exeter and East Midlands will fly daily; and Newquay will operate three times a week.

The airline will increase services from Guernsey to up to five times a day on both Guernsey to Southampton and the Inter-Island service to Jersey.

Commenting on the extension and additional flights for summer 2021, Rob Veron, Blue Islands CEO, said: ‘The latest schedule release means that flights are on sale through to the end of the school summer holidays in 2021. Customers can now plan and book next summer’s holiday, securing great fares by booking early. You can also make reservations with confidence in the knowledge of flexibility when choosing our Blue Plus fares where there are no change fees (although fare difference may apply) plus 2 x 23kg hold luggage, complimentary seat selection and double frequent flyer points. And finally, you will also be booking with the island’s only home-based carrier airline that also has the financial support of the Government of Jersey. We are looking forward to once-again serving Jersey and Guernsey with high-frequency flights.’

Prices start from under £50.00 one-way, including hold luggage. In addition to direct destinations, Blue Islands now offers connecting services on its network and via its codeshare partner Loganair; to Dublin, Manchester, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle, Aberdeen and Inverness.
