Blue Islands (SI/BCI) has confirmed it will return to Cardiff Airport in summer 2018.

The Saint Peter Port headquartered airline will once again operate a twice-weekly service between Guernsey (GCI/EGJB) and Cardiff Airport (CWL/EGFF) under a Flybe franchise.

The flights, which are bookable through the website are scheduled to begin on the 29th May.

Rob Veron, Blue Islands CEO, said he hoped the route would boost visitor numbers on the island of Guernsey: “Blue Islands continues its commitment to stimulate the Guernsey visitor economy by adding a direct link to a major city during summer. Thanks to our participation in Flybe’s sales channels, Guernsey will once again enjoy exposure to thousands of potential new visitors. With two flights a week and competitive pricing, we hope many of them will take the opportunity to visit our wonderful island. This link also provides islanders with another direct city break option, along with Cardiff being the gateway to the rest of Wales.”

Deb Barber, CEO of Cardiff Airport, added:  “It’s great to welcome one of our newest airlines, Blue Islands, back to Cardiff Airport this summer.  The franchise agreement between Blue Islands and Flybe is an innovative way to offer our customers even more choice and value for money.”

The route is operated by a Blue Islands ATR aircraft.
