Guernsey gets first flight route from Heathrow in 20 years

Airlines Flybe and Blue Islands have announced the launch of new flight routes to Guernsey.

The flights mark the fifth and sixth new routes to be announced this year to the destination from the UK, following new routes from Edinburgh, Bournemouth, Southend and Liverpool in a bid to develop Guernsey’s strategic air links.

Flybe announced its new flight route from Heathrow to Guernsey Airport. It will operate a return afternoon flight service seven days a week from March 31. The route is the first direct flight to operate from Guernsey to Heathrow in over 20 years. Fares start from £20.77 one way.

Following the recent announcements of two new services operated by Blue Islands - Guernsey to Southend and Guernsey to Liverpool which commence May 20 and 21 – the airline has now added a third new route from Guernsey to Newquay this summer, introducing three direct flights per week. The new flight services will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays throughout the summer season between June 3 and August 31.

The one-hour flight offers a more convenient and customer friendly option travelling from Cornwall Airport Newquay and makes a short stop in Jersey before continuing its path to Guernsey. Fares start from £49.99 one way.
