Blue Islands invites business community to express interest in direct Jersey-Guernsey-Luxembourg route

Blue Islands has developed a survey to appraise the appetite within the Channel Island business community for a direct service to Luxembourg, with initial input from Aztec and PWC, both of which have regular requirements for travel to this key business location.

Unlike other European destinations that are easily accessible through a hub airport such as Southampton, travel from the Channel Islands to Luxembourg often involves costly airport transfers and long travel times including overnight stopovers in the UK. With this in mind, the locally-owned airline is currently assessing the viability of a twice weekly direct service designed to provide a convenient and cost-effective travel option. The proposed service would depart Jersey mid-morning and route to Luxembourg via Guernsey, with a flight time of 1hr40 from Guernsey.

Tom Barrasin, Blue Islands Chief Commercial Officer commented:

Thanks to discussions and feedback from multiple corporate service users, Blue Islands has an initial understanding of the corporate community travel requirements to Luxembourg from the Islands. Now we are reaching out to the broader business community to get more granular feedback on beliefs and opinions around the route usage, schedule, seasonality, current travel experience and other service requirements to see if this could be a viable, sustainable route. At Blue Islands, we continually seek new route opportunities to better serve the Channel Islands. We would like to encourage corporates and business travellers to complete the survey, so that we might learn more about our customers and shape the best service solutions to meet their needs and ultimately determine if that service can be delivered in a commercially viable way.

Rob Jones, Aztec Director added

Aztec welcomes Blue Islands’ initiative to ascertain the potential demand for direct flights to Luxembourg from the Channel Islands. Anecdotally we understand there is a requirement for this service, therefore we urge all potential users to complete the survey and provide Blue Islands with the information they need to appraise the new route fully.

The survey will be open until Friday 31 August...
