Blue Islands franchise partnership with Flybe goes live
On Monday 6th June 2016, Blue Islands took to the skies in the distinctive operating colours of its new franchise partner flybe, Europe's largest regional airline.
Rob Veron, Blue Islands' Managing Director said:
The first day of our franchise operation went extremely smoothly as planned, despite the regular challenge of Channel Island fog. By becoming Flybe's third franchise partner, travel to and from Guernsey and Jersey will become even more convenient thanks to the quick and easy through-connectivity offered through Flybe's extensive UK and European network, benefitting Channel Islanders and visitors alike.
Under the Flybe franchise, Blue Islands is operating 1,100 flights per month on its Guernsey-Jersey, Guernsey-Southampton, Jersey-Bristol, Jersey-London City and new Jersey-Southampton services.
Vincent Hodder, Flybe's Chief Revenue Officer said:
The start of Blue Islands' Flybe franchise operation marks a significant milestone for both airlines, creating an exciting synergy between two of the Channel Islands' best known airlines. Through the services they offer, we look forward to bringing the world to the Islands' doorstep, providing customers with increased efficiencies and access to a greater choice of UK and European connections.
Mr Veron added:
All bookings for Blue Islands-operated services can now be made through flybe.com. All our flights now operate using Flybe flight numbers and we have commenced our aircraft repainting programme which will see four of our five ATR aircraft sporting the distinctive Flybe livery.
Existing Blue Islands' customers' bookings have been transferred to the new Flybe services. The only change will be a different flight number and booking reference; all other details remain the same and no further action is required.
