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 ATR

11th year of welcoming Swiss visitors to the Channel Islands

Summer 2019 will mark the 11th year of Swiss visitors enjoying the Channel Islands, as Blue Islands has once again been chosen by leading Swiss tour operator Rolf Meier Reisen to operate its 18-week charter services from Zurich to Jersey and Guernsey.

Walter Fink, Rolf Meier Reisen Director said

With a long relationship that started in 2008, we know Blue Islands will deliver an excellent service for our guests thanks to its unique position as a true Channel Islands operator, providing a flexible and bespoke service to meet our requirements. The 68-seat ATR 72 aircraft is optimal for our market and with bases in Guernsey and Jersey we are able to offer holiday products to both islands meaning even more choice for our customers.

Rob Veron, Blue Islands CEO commented,

As a Channel Islands based airline, partnering with specialist tour operators serving niche markets that want to visit Guernsey and Jersey are essential to the visitor economy and reinforces our commitment to the rejuvenation of our tourism industry.

The charter service will operate over an 18-week period on Saturdays between 11 May and 7 September 2019 with flights departing Zurich to Jersey with onward connections to Guernsey. Return flights will depart Jersey, briefly stopping to collect guests staying in Guernsey before continuing to Zurich.

Mr Veron added

We’re delighted to have once again been chosen by Rolf Meier Reisen and look forward to welcoming more Swiss visitors to discover our beautiful islands for the 2019 season.

As well as the inbound flights from Zurich, summer 2019 will see Blue Islands operate series charter services into the Channel Islands from Germany, Rotterdam and Groningen for 14, 22 and eight-week periods respectively.
