New Larger Aircraft Joins Blue Islands Fleet

Blue Islands has added another ATR-72 aircraft to its fleet.

It means all five planes it operates are of the same make and size.

The new aircraft can accommodate 26 more passengers than the previous ATR-42 it replaces.

Rob Veron is Blue Islands' CEO:

"Our fifth ATR 72 aircraft demonstrates Blue Islands' commitment to providing year-round, sustainable connectivity and socio-economic benefits for the Island. It also underpins our positive but measured approach to growth as we emerge from the difficult market conditions caused by the pandemic over the past two years."

The airline now uses Jersey as its hub but flies direct from Guernsey to Southampton.
