Blue Islands has become the Official Airline Partner of Jersey Reds for the current season, working with the rugby club in helping the 1st team squad fly to forthcoming fixtures in the Greene King IPA Championship.
The 2020/21 Championship season has been delayed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic but a start date of March 6th has been confirmed, with each team playing ten games across March, April and May, operating as part of the UK’s elite sport programme.
The Reds’ squad will travel to away games in England via chartered day-trip flights with Blue Islands.
Jersey Reds Chairman Mark Morgan said he was delighted the two organisations would be working together.
“As the Channel Island’s only professional sports team we will be continuing to fly the flag for Jersey in the second tier of English rugby, and by travelling with Blue Islands the squad can travel with comfort and convenience and in the safest way possible during the current situation,” he said.
Rob Veron, Chief Executive of Blue Islands, said: “As a local airline, we understand the significant role Jersey Reds plays in the community which is why Blue Islands is proud to have been appointed as the Reds’ Official Airline Partner. We look forward to welcoming the Jersey Reds onboard and wish the team the very best of luck for the season ahead.”
The Greene King IPA Championship season is set to start on the weekend of 6th March, with teams facing a truncated schedule in two conferences of six teams. The Reds have been grouped with Saracens, Ampthill, London Scottish and Hartpury, and are also seeking to arrange one or two friendly fixtures during February.
The Reds hope to secure final confirmation from the Government of Jersey this week following detailed discussions regarding the testing regime for all participants and other Covid-19 protocols.
