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 passengers wearing face masks.

You will be exempt if you have a medical reason not to wear a face mask, written medical advice will be required, please inform us at check-in. Children under 6 years old are also exempt.

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.

Record breaking passenger numbers for Blue Islands this summer

Blue Islands has enjoyed a record breaking summer as it welcomed 37,788 passengers onboard in August, the most customers it has ever served in a single month and an increase of 8% from August 2017. This comes as the Channel Islands based airline flew 107,298 passengers in the summer months of June, July and August, another record amount, up 3% from the same period in 2017.

Winter 2016/17 saw Blue Islands invest in larger ATR aircraft and this is one of the reasons cited by Rob Veron, Blue Islands CEO when explaining the record figures:

We are pleased with the strong passenger numbers this summer. Blue Islands has sustainably grown its fleet capacity, investing in the larger 68-seat ATR 72 aircraft, and with the fleet set to continue to evolve, it will enable Blue Islands to further develop its services for Channel Islanders and inbound visitors alike.

From Jersey, London City was particularly strong with customers taking advantage of the airport’s unrivalled location in the heart of London. Thanks to one booking and the high frequency of Blue Islands operated flights from Guernsey and Jersey to Southampton, passengers are also increasingly using Southampton Airport when flying to destinations across the UK and Europe with easy connections to flights operated by Blue Islands’ franchise partner Flybe.

This comes as Blue Islands has returned its popular fly / rail link from Guernsey to central London via Southampton. Islanders can now enjoy exclusive train fares of £36 anytime return between Southampton Airport and London Waterloo.
