Flybe’s Channel Islands-based franchise partner, Blue Islands, will now operate services between Jersey and East Midlands, with new connections to/from Guernsey.
Taking effect from Sunday 27 October 2019, the service will offer up to four flights a week on an ATR aircraft. A daily service will be offered in summer 2020.
Flybe customers with existing bookings will be contacted in order of date of travel with a re-booking option to the new Blue Islands-operated service.
Rob Veron, CEO Blue Islands said: ‘We are delighted to provide a continuation of this route and pleased to be able to serve existing customers with uninterrupted connectivity. All flights can continue to be booked at flybe.com. What’s more, we are pleased to be able to also extend our East Midlands service to Guernsey residents, offering even greater choice to and from the UK.’
East Midlands Airport provides easy access to the East Midlands area plus Warwickshire, Staffordshire, South Yorkshire and beyond.
