Record summer for Blue Islands
Blue Islands has broken its record over the summer, with the most customers it’s ever served in a single month and a significant increase in passengers.
We’re told the airline welcomed 37,788 passengers in August – an 8% increase from August last year.
The Flybe franchise partner flew 107,298 passengers over June, July and August, with an increase of 3% on the same period in 2017.
CEO, Rob Veron, says:
‘We are please 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.
‘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.’
Blue Islands has returned its popular fly/rail link from Guernsey to central London via Southampton.
