EXPO host Heathrow announces Flybe Guernsey route

Henri Ozarovsky, Director of Network Planning, Fleet and Scheduling, Flybe (pictured centre), spoke at this month’s Heathrow National Growth Conference, which explored major priorities for the airport’s expansion, including to provide more frequent and affordable connections to every UK region and nation.

Flybe has today announced it will launch a daily service between Guernsey and Heathrow on 31 March 2019. It will be the first direct connection between the island and Heathrow in 20 years, and will be operated by 78-seat Bombardier Q400 aircraft.

“We are delighted to welcome a Guernsey service back at Heathrow after a 20-year absence,” says John Holland-Kaye, CEO Heathrow Airport. “Flybe’s new service will be a huge opportunity to encourage more international tourists to visit this beautiful and unique island, whilst linking Guernsey residents directly to the world.”

Roy Kinnear, Chief Commercial Officer, Flybe, adds: “We are naturally delighted to provide Guernsey with connectivity to the capital and onwards to the long-haul destinations available via Heathrow. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the many stakeholders including those from government, tourism authorities and airports for their support in enabling us to operate this new service, and we look forward to welcoming many new passengers on board.”

Charles Parkinson, President Committee for Economic Development, States of Guernsey, comments: “We are delighted that Flybe is announcing the launch of this new daily service and prestigious new route, the sixth new air route launch since our ‘Open Skies’ policy went live in September of 2018. Worldwide connectivity through a major international hub is an important achievement of one of the Committees top strategic objectives, and we would like to thank Flybe for their commitment to Guernsey, and to developing Guernsey’s strategic air links. This new Heathrow service will not only provide much improved connectivity for Guernsey’s residents and its visitors, but it will also help in the development of the Guernsey economy and in raising Guernsey’s international reputation and profile.”

Paul Hogan, Director of British-Irish Airports EXPO and Publisher of anna.aero, with Henri Ozarovsky, Director of Network Planning, Fleet and Scheduling, Flybe. Heathrow Expansion is supported by the Regional And Business Airports Group (RABA), which is a closely held partner of both Heathrow and British-Irish Airports EXPO.
