New air taxi for Channel Isles

Isle-Fly, an air taxi service believed to be the first to be set up in the Channel Islands for 30 years, has opened for business headed by Paul Sabin, former managing director of local airline Blue Islands, and Colin Wright.

The venture, established by Jersey Jet Centre and based at Jersey Airport, uses an eight-seat multi-engined Cessna aircraft giving the option to fly to destinations up to two hours from Jersey or Guernsey.

Sabin said: “The service is the perfect choice for both corporate and leisure groups. At a time when inter-island travel is proving increasingly expensive, Isle-Fly provides a flexible, cost effective and dynamic solution to the market.”

Wright, who is the company’s commercial director, added: “Isle-Fly is a functional and efficient proposition that the Islands desperately need, bridging the gap between scheduled flights and expensive jet charters.

“It’s your plane, your way. Passengers choose when and where they want to fly. We can access smaller airfields that get them closer to their destinations, avoiding the congested larger hubs.”

Ports of Jersey Group CEO Doug Bannister said: “The introduction of this product is exciting, and offers customers more choice in travel options from the islands.”
