Leading regional airline’s winter seat sale to boost travel between Jersey and Guernsey: and more weekend flights for summer to Edinburgh and Norwich

13th January 2016

Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline, has today (13th January 2016) announced a seat sale for flights between Jersey and Guernsey with one way fares from £24.99 including taxes and charges, effective for travel between 18th January and 24th March, 2016.

Offering up to two return flights a day, this has been done to assist the large number of islanders wanting to make convenient day return trips.

It has been made possible following the removal by the States of Guernsey of the 10% seat restriction on Flybe’s Guernsey - Jersey inter-island services and the subsequent variation made to the airline’s Guernsey Air Transport Licence 28.

And in more good news for Jersey customers, Flybe has also added frequency to its Edinburgh and Norwich routes as part of its peak summer 2016 Summer programme.

The airline will now operate up to four flights a week to Edinburgh with the addition of Monday, Friday and Sunday flights to its existing Saturday schedule between 1st July and 20th September: and has added extra Sunday flights to enhance its previous Saturday only schedule from 22nd May to 18th September.

Seats are available for booking now at
