Glasgow 2014

Guernsey Commonwealth Games Team depart for Glasgow

Glasgow Airport was a hub of buzz and excitement on the morning of Saturday 19 July, as our Guernsey Commonwealth Games Association Team departed on its specially chartered Blue Islands flight to Glasgow 2014.

The 39-strong team of elite Guernsey athletes will compete against 70 other Commonwealth nations across nine sports - athletics, badminton, cycling, judo, lawn bowls, shooting, squash, swimming and table tennis in this 12 day sporting event.

Prior to boarding, the team enjoyed numerous photo opportunities and interviews with the media as well as the usual complimentary refreshments in the Blue Islands lounge. The Guernsey team used Twitter to post several tweets complimenting the Blue Islands 'Welcome Difference' including "Great service by #blueislands" and swimmer James Jurkiewicz tweeting #freebies. 

Rob Veron, Blue Islands' Managing Director said

Blue Islands offers a range of bespoke solutions for travel partners in the Channel Islands and the UK. We were delighted to be chosen by Travel Solutions to deliver a service to meet the needs of our Guernsey Commonwealth Games team. Our locally based 66-seat ATR 72 aircraft was the perfect solution for this special requirement.

Travel Solutions Director, Amanda Eulenkamp said

Blue Islands met all of our specific requirements including baggage, catering and even realising our specially designed Travel Solutions headrest covers! It's great that two local organisations could work together to ensure our Guernsey Commonwealth Games Team could travel efficiently together for the best preparation ahead of the games.

Mr Veron added

We would like to wish our Guernsey team a prosperous time at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games and we look forward to welcoming them home.
