Blue Islands’ new codeshare flights with its partner Loganair, Scotland’s airline, are now live. Customers can book services from Exeter, Southampton and the Channel Islands of Jersey and Guernsey to destinations on the Loganair network via , or their preferred travel agent.

The codeshare enables customers to seamlessly book connecting flights with just one booking and one transaction. All hold luggage will be checked through to the final destination.

Our initial connecting destinations from 26 October are:

From Guernsey & Jersey:

  • Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle  and Manchester via Southampton

From Exeter/Southampton:

  • Aberdeen  & Inverness via Manchester

Commenting on the start of the connecting services Blue Islands CEO, Rob Veron said, “We are delighted that customers can now book flights using our previously announced codeshare partnership with Loganair. Our initial set of connections enable easy travel to a number of very popular destinations in Scotland and the North for our customers in Guernsey, Jersey, Exeter and Southampton. We expect the network to develop even further very soon, with a wider choice of destinations for next summer.”

As well as seamless bookings, customers flying to or from Guernsey or Jersey will also benefit from APD (Air Passenger Duty) savings, plus for peace of mind, if a flight is delayed and there is a missed connection, passengers will be re-accommodated to the next available service.

Loganair Chief Executive Jonathan Hinkles said “We’re excited our new codeshare partnership with Blue Islands starts today and we’re confident it will be welcome news for customers looking to travel to the North from the Channel Isles and by those in Scotland looking to explore all that Jersey and Guernsey have to offer. The agreement also greatly strengthens our connectivity to Southampton and Exeter with extra connecting options via Manchester complementing our direct services from the central belt and Newcastle. We look forward to further developing our relations with Blue Islands for the benefit of all our customers.”
