England’s Roadmap a boost for Guernsey and Jersey travel

England’s Roadmap a boost for Channel Island travel

Boris Johnson’s speech to parliament on Monday provided optimism that travel will resume this summer.

Rob Veron, CEO Blue Islands said, “While exact dates are still to be confirmed, following Monday’s announcement of the planned easing of restrictions we have seen a significant increase in website visitors and bookings. This is indicative of the pent-up demand we are expecting to see as travel restrictions begin to ease and confidence to book returns.

“We know that right now, booking flexibility is key, whether it’s reuniting with loved ones, missed celebrations, or a relaxing summer break. With that in mind all new bookings with Blue Islands made until 14 March for travel this summer will enjoy free upgrades to our Blue Plus fares with no change fees for added peace of mind in case you need to change your plans.”

Guernsey and Jersey being in the Common Travel Area should mean less restrictions compared to international destinations once local controls are lifted.

Rob added, “We are ready to restart flying our full network and we look forward to supporting the States of Guernsey and Government of Jersey together with Visit Guernsey and Visit Jersey to re-connect our island communities and support inbound tourism when local restrictions are eased. With the progress of the vaccine programme, we are standing by and looking forward to welcoming both our local customers, and visitors to our islands, on board again soon.

“We believe the Channel Islands will be more desirable than ever for our visitors from the UK, safe and close to home, but will still feel a world away this summer.”

Blue Islands is continuing ensure Jersey’s essential connectivity to the UK is maintained for medical, compassionate and repatriation purposes.
