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 passengers wearing face masks.

You will be exempt if you have a medical reason not to wear a face mask, written medical advice will be required, please inform us at check-in. Children under 6 years old are also exempt.

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’ ground handling

Ground Handling

Take off for Blue Islands’ new ground handling team

Blue Islands’ new ground handling team has got off to a flying start, immediately improving the operator’s turn-around times in its first busy weekend of operation.  

The airline has created 32 local new jobs with the creation of its own ground handling team which is now providing services to all Blue Islands operated flights at Guernsey Airport.

Rob Veron, CEO Blue Islands said, “It’s an exciting time in the continued sustainable development of Blue Islands.

The creation of our 32-strong ground team puts Blue Islands in control of many critical aspects of our flight arrival and departure processes.

As we transitioned away from our previous handling agent, there were some operational issues out of our control. We are glad to be able to assure our customers that we are back where we need and want to be.

2019 has been another progressive year for our business, including the addition of three new routes from Guernsey and now with our new dedicated ground handling team, Blue Islands remains focused on continuing to provide the very best value for money services to our customers travelling to and from Guernsey.

The new handling team includes check-in agents, aircraft despatchers, baggage handlers and ramp agents who have been put through their paces with a thorough training programme, specifically created for each discipline. 

Mr Veron added,

As a locally owned and managed business, we proudly serve the Channel Islands.

Blue Islands now employs a team of 130 across its bases in Guernsey and Jersey.
