Flybe to introduce Jet service on Gatwick to Guernsey route

Flybe has announced that its brand new 88-seat Embraer jet aircraft will operate up to four key flights a day between Guernsey and London Gatwick from 31 March 2013.

The airline, which has long wanted to offer its Guernsey passengers a jet service, is now able to introduce the Embraer thanks to an upgrade and the strengthening of the Guernsey airport runway.

Andrew Strong, Flybe’s MD UK commented, “We know there is a demand for a jet service on this route from both the business and leisure sectors travelling to and from the Island and our E-175 jets have been very positively received by passengers since they joined the Flybe fleet just over a year ago. With a minimum of 30” leg room and 2×2 seating, they demonstrate our product commitment to providing enhanced passenger comfort and convenience.”
