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.

New Year, same destination? Not in Guernsey

The Adventure Rooms

A whole new type of experience will throw open its doors in January – and then quickly lock behind. Escape experience “The Adventure Rooms” is coming to Fermain Valley Hotel, and it will be the first of its kind in Guernsey. Established all over the world, the website proudly boasts “only 30% of teams manage to escape”, thanks to the fiendish set of puzzles designed to keep you locked up. Maybe Guernsey can beat that record.  No Googling is allowed, it’s a test of mental brawn, all set to a Jack Bauer 60 minute countdown. Billed as a great thing for couples to team building – and maybe even people who want to channel their inner Houdini.

Pirate Bay

Pirate Bay golf course is still new enough to include on this list. Fairly claimable as Guernsey’s premiere tourist destination, it has become a firm favourite of locals as well. While the advertising makes walking the plank references, you’ll find nothing as pithy as that on this blog. With 12 holes to challenge people of all ages, it’s a fun, interactive course requiring – and this is a first for Guernsey – rope pulled mini-rafts to get across a river in order to head to the next stage. It’s full on family fun, and there’s an aces restaurant, 19 Bar and Grill, attached. Attached to that restaurant is a two-tier, 14 bay (heated) driving range with table service.

Guernsey Potato Peel Society

Then of course there’s biggie, the item which won’t only hit Guernsey’s shores, but wash over the world in filmic glory. Yes, The Guernsey Potato Peel Society – beloved of American book clubs – is coming to the big screen. Entitled, simply, “Guernsey”, the story about an unlikely journalistic friendship will finally hit cinemas after nearly a decade of development. The date to scribble in your diary: April 20th. And the actual island of Guernsey is prepared for what it hopes will be a surge of interest in both its present and its past. This means one thing: tours. Lots of tours. There’s one on bicycles, one in a bus and another on your feet. Maybe there’ll also be a Potato Peel Bake Off. It’s also the book the island’s government sent to Donald Trump as a congratulations on winning the election – so keep an eye on his Twitter feed for endorsements.
