Blue Islands stops services to Jersey and Guernsey

Fri, 30 Nov 2012

Blue Islands has announced it’s pulling out of operating direct flights to and from the Channel Islands.

The airline runs a direct service to Jersey and Guernsey from the Isle of Man three times a week.

According to Blue Islands there’s been a 72 per cent decrease in passenger numbers on the routes – something which is untenable for the business.

In a statement the company blames falling numbers on the fact the Island is not a strong leisure destination. It also says key business accounts have stopped travelling here.

The last flight will be on Friday, February 1st. Customers booked to travel after this can claim a refund.
