In accordance with the latest advice from the States of Guernsey and Government of Jersey if you are flying to Guernsey or Jersey, please read the following pre-departure information.
Regions within the UK are now categorised into three bands (Green, Amber, Red) with different testing and isolation requirements when arriving into Jersey.

The three-band system also applies to countries and regions outside of the UK. An updated list by region can be found here: countries and regions are risk assessed.
Passengers are required to disclose their travel history for the 14 days prior to arrival in Jersey, including country of departure, and any other countries or regions visited or will have visited in this 14-day period.

Multiple Bags for Free
At Blue Islands we understand travelling to and from university or college can be stressful, especially for new students. That’s why we’re taking that worry away; adding an additional 23kg hold luggage allowance to every trip to and from university.
Students travelling on our Blue Fly fare now receive a 2 x 23kg hold luggage allowance, while students travelling on a Blue Plus fare get a 3 x 23kg allowance. The Blue Plus fare also includes complimentary seat allocation and flexibility, in case plans change.
The additional item of hold luggage will be added at check-in when a valid student ID or offer letter from a university or college is provided.
Commenting on the policy Rob Veron, Blue Islands CEO said, “We know students from our islands have a challenging time taking all that they need when travelling to and from university. We are pleased to offer this additional complimentary allowance; The Welcome Difference. This is the most generous student baggage policy in the Channel Islands.”
From 1 September, Blue Islands will be flying from Jersey to Southampton, Bristol, Exeter and Birmingham. Flights to East Midlands (Nottingham, Leicester & Derby) start on 29 September.
Rob concluded “For our students travelling from Guernsey, we plan to restart inter-island and Southampton services from 21 September, subject to travel restrictions. You can also connect with us to a range of final destinations via Jersey. The additional hold luggage allowance will apply throughout. Should travel restrictions remain, Guernsey students are welcome to use the ongoing Business Tunnel flights which will run twice a day on Thursdays to Jersey, again connecting to a vast range of services until normal high frequency services resume, giving you the choice of end destination in the meantime.”
