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.

Blue Islands is set to expand its Guernsey team as the airline gears up to provide its own ground handling services at Guernsey Airport.  

With the creation of over 35 new positions, recruitment is well underway for check-in agents, aircraft despatchers, baggage handlers, ramp agents and several supervisory roles.

Rob Veron, CEO Blue Islands said,

So far this year we have announced the launch of three new routes to Liverpool, London Southend and Newquay, plus we have a busy summer programme of series charters for a number of European tour operator partners. Therefore, with our existing handling arrangements coming to the end of the contracted term, we have the opportunity to establish our own presence once more at Guernsey Airport, ensuring focused and attentive, best value handling provision for our customers.

Our entire team at Blue Islands looks forward to welcoming our new recruits over the coming weeks.
