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 back!

Blue Islands is back. Today the Channel Islands airline launched its new brand identity, new routes, new website and new product offering. The first aircraft sporting the new livery touched down in Jersey and Guernsey to celebrate and share the airline’s new look. Tickets with new fare options have also gone on sale at blueislands.com and all customers are being invited to sign up to the airline’s new Blue Skies Club frequent flyer programme.

Rob Veron, CEO Blue Islands said,

Today is a very special and exciting day for the Blue Islands team across our Guernsey and Jersey bases. We have been working really hard behind the scenes over the past few months with the aim of re-emerging, post pandemic, stronger and better than ever. We look forward to serving the Channel Islands again with extensive Guernsey schedules to Jersey, Southampton and beyond, together with our services from Jersey to Bristol, Southampton and new routes Birmingham and Exeter.

He continued,

Channel Islanders told us that they want flying to be simple and easy again with no hidden costs and stresses over bag restrictions. We’ve listened, taking all the ideas onboard, and we are proud to announce our new product offering, refreshed brand identity and new website. No gotcha’s, we are focussed on simplifying regional air travel, making sure that our product and service offerings, are uniquely tailored to the needs of our passengers. Whether flying for business or leisure we are making flying a pleasure again and we know that it’s the little things that matter and make the welcome difference.

Following the collapse of Flybe in March, Blue Islands (then a Flybe franchisee) swiftly re-established itself as an independent carrier, continuing to operate without interruption. Whilst the islands have been in lock down, Blue Islands has provided lifeline services for Jersey, operating essential flights to both Southampton and Gatwick – repatriating to and from the island, transporting key essential workers and ensuring those requiring off-island medical care get there safely.

Mr Veron concluded:

Today is just the beginning. There will be more announcements in the coming days and weeks ahead. We would like to encourage everyone to explore our new website and fare options, plus learn about the wellbeing measures we have implemented. Sign up for regular updates and also register for our Blue Skies Club, our new frequent flyer programme that will truly reward our regular customers. We are very much looking forward to welcoming our passengers onboard soon.
