Blue Islands is a Channel Islands-based airline which operates as a Flybe franchise.  It has just announced a new Summer route from Jersey and Guernsey to Newquay.

Flights will operate from 3rd June to 31st August.

There will be three services per week, on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.  The plane will start in Guernsey and make a brief stopover in Jersey before continuing on to Cornwall.

Blue Islands has also recently announced Guernsey to London Southend and Guernsey to Liverpool which commence on 20th May and 21st May respectively, both operating as Flybe franchises and bookable on

Despite being franchised, you can book these Flybe routes with Avios.  A one-way from Guernsey to Newquay is 4,500 Avios plus just £5 of tax, although the costs of flying out of Newquay push up the taxes on a return trip to £39.

Your best option to maximise your miles when paying is American Express Preferred Rewards Gold.  This offers double points – 2 per £1 – when you when you book flight tickets directly with an airline.  Our review of Amex Gold is here.

  1. Received 5000 iPrefer points earlier and I have no idea why. Haven’t stayed or booked anything with them.

  2. Lady London says:

    Even the Arrivals Lounge in T5 has gone right downhill. Staff used to be excellent but it sounds as though we got the same staff in in both. No customer service skills at any level. The Arrivals Lounge felt like a Wimpy when I arrived back at Christmas and visited it for the first time in a long while. I was so disappointed, I’d been looking forward to going back again. British Airways seems to be taking away aspirational things all the time.

    T5 Arrivals is all about self-check in now. If you want a BA person to do something, it is difficult indeed.

  4. IanMac says:

    T5 Arrivals Lounge is a disgrace. Service is pathetic (even in Gold / First room) – only reason to go there is to get a shirt ironed !!

    I presume Greg is critiquing the First Class Concorde Lounge.
    With a CCR card I am a frequent visitor – Wednesday this week and will be back again this Sunday afternoon.

    My curiosity has been raised regarding the standard of wine served in the CCR – I will try and check what exactly is on offer (but if its the same style £5 bottle then does it really matter the grape, region, chateau, year, …)
    Having made 90 business trips to the sub-continent in the last 7 years I am very familiar with the cranial movement characteristic.
    However, I have to say that I don’t actually recall personally experiencing that characteristic in the T5 CCR !!
    I have to say that the 4 ladies and all the guys have been great with myself / ourselves over the years – and they make a real mean white Russian (with cream) !!
