Flights to Guernsey from the Isle of Man are now on sale offering people the unique opportunity to travel between the islands without the need to isolate.
Guernsey’s Aurigny airline has confirmed that it will be offering two flights a week between Guernsey and the Isle of Man as part of an airbridge bubble agreed by both island Governments and announced last week.
Fares will start from £39.99 each way and Guernsey hotel and accommodation providers are also offering favourable ‘staycation’ rates for those travelling from the Isle of Man to ensure residents will be able to get a good deal for an isolation free holiday this summer. Just like the Isle of Man, Guernsey is now fully open with no social distancing measures in place so a visit to the island is a great opportunity to visit somewhere different and enjoy the same freedom. Guernsey also offers the unique opportunity to visit other islands in the Bailiwick without isolation too, so you may end up in Alderney, Sark or Herm! https://club.visitguernsey.com
The flights will commence on Wednesday 22nd of July 2020 and will run until the end of August, with the last flight taking place on Sunday 30th of August 2020.
Mark Darby, Chief Executive for Aurigny, said: “We are delighted to be launching a new route in the midst of this pandemic. It is testament to the way both island Governments have handled the crisis and means that Islanders will be able to take a holiday this year. This initiative would not have happened without the support of the Governments, and airports in each island.”
The new route enables Aurigny to take to the skies on a regular basis with customers once again travelling for pleasure.
