Blue Islands, the Channel Islands airline, is joining forces with one of Europe’s leading regional airlines, CityJet.
This new partnership will provide those travelling from the channel Islands with easy access to major European cities on hundreds of connecting codeshare flights every week from London City Airport through the CityJet network.
Currently Blue Islands operate alternate day direct flights from Jersey to Europe which customers find inconvenient. The CityJet link provides the opportunity for daily services to Amsterdam, Paris, Dublin, Antwerp and Rotterdam; with many destinations now being served up to nine times per day. This means that day returns to Amsterdam and Paris are now possible from Jersey. Passengers will also benefit from APD (Air Passenger Duty) savings when booking connecting flights through the codeshare.
Blue Islands has also announced an additional lunchtime service to London City offering 25,000 more seats per year and a 45% increase in capacity. The new flight will depart Jersey at 13.00, with the return flight departing London City at 14.40.
The new daily connecting flights via London City will commence early next year, the exact date will be announced in the coming weeks as schedules are finalised.
