Enhanced wellbeing - fly with confidence

The continued safety and wellbeing of our passengers and crew is always our highest priority which is why we have implemented enhanced wellbeing measures which includes all customers aged 11 and above wearing face masks.

There is an exemption to the requirement for a face covering for customers with medical grounds, such as respiratory difficulties. If you meet the exemption requirements, you may be asked to present supporting government documentation

This is one element of a series of enhanced wellbeing measures we have implemented which include:

  • Microbe Shield surface protection in the cabin
  • Aircraft touch point sanitation procedures
  • Cabin air is continuously replenished with fresh air every 5 - 7 minutes, the cabin may be slightly cooler than normal, therefore you may wish to have a jumper to hand
  • Seat allocation to maximise the distance between passengers in the cabin where possible.
  • Reduced contact points, with the exception of safety cards, all seat-back literature has been removed and there is no inflight service

We look forward to welcoming you on board.

Flight fund

Blue Islands is proud to offer support to islanders through our Flight Fund, which provides opportunities to individuals, groups and charities to achieve goals that would otherwise not be possible without the ability to travel.

The Flight Fund marks a departure from Blue Islands’ previous ad-hoc approach which in 2018 saw over 100 return flights provided for individuals such as Grace Greenwood and charitable groups including the Youth Commission for Guernsey and Alderney.

To qualify for potential Flight Fund support, our criteria is:

  • You are applying to access an opportunity that would otherwise be impossible or very difficult to achieve without the support of free flights
  • The activity being undertaken must enable something good to happen (an opportunity, experience, development or achievement for example) to the benefit of the recipient(s) and, where possible, the broader community
  • Sponsorship must directly benefit the recipient

Blue Islands is always proud to partner with hard-working individuals, groups and charities which make such a difference to the lives of Islanders.

We look forward to announcing our next Flight Fund soon.

I felt very proud to represent the Channel Islands at this prestigious event.
