New Blue Islands Channel Islands – Cornwall connection starts today

Blue Islands today launched its third new service for 2019, which sees three flights per week connecting Guernsey and Jersey to Cornwall Airport Newquay this summer.

Rob Veron, CEO Blue Islands said, “Cornwall Airport Newquay is the third exciting new addition to the Blue Islands route network for 2019. Key to our development strategy is commercial viability and sustainability of services.”

The service will see flights operate on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays throughout the summer season until 31 August 2019. Flights start in Guernsey with a short stop in Jersey allowing passengers to board the aircraft before continuing to Cornwall Airport Newquay.

“We continue to develop a broader portfolio of destinations and airlines for our passengers as we see an ever-growing demand for visitors coming to Cornwall, but also those who seek ease of travel from their local airport,” says Al Titterington, Managing Director, Cornwall Airport Newquay. “Blue Islands’ schedule is ideal for anyone wanting to enjoy an extended weekend, or a full week break, in either the Channel Islands or Cornwall – now just a one-hour flight away compared to an eight-hour drive and ferry crossing,” adds Titterington.

Mr Veron added, “Whether it’s Channel Islanders enjoying all that Cornwall has to offer including Michelin star dining, the incredible back drop for the hit TV series Poldark and of course the pretty Cornish harbours, or residents of Cornwall looking to experience our beautiful Channel Islands, we look forward to welcoming our customers on board this summer.”
