Flights from Cardiff to Guernsey Return for Summer 2018


Following its first season of flying from Cardiff Airport to Guernsey in 2017, Blue Islands – Flybe’s franchise partner – has confirmed the return of flights to the popular channel island for the coming summer season.

Starting from 29th May 2018, direct flights are available on Tuesdays and Saturdays and bookable on Flybe’s website, offering Welsh customers the opportunity to enjoy a short break.

Offering miles of stunning coastline and hidden coves, an abundance of fresh seafood and years of history and culture to discover, the island of Guernsey is the ideal destination for a long weekend for foodies, adrenaline seekers and culture vultures alike.

Deb Barber, CEO of Cardiff Airport, said: 

“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 island offers visitors a unique experience and boasts stunning scenery, and with two departures a week it’s great for a relaxing break that’s not too far from home. Additionally, this service offers visitors from Guernsey the perfect opportunity to visit Wales and to discover all that our stunning country has to offer.”

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.”
