London City connects

Blue Islands, the Channel Islands airline, is to close its routes from Jersey to Amsterdam, Paris and Zurich from 5 January.  At the same time it is to enter a codeshare with Dublin-based CityJet and increases its own services to London City Airport from twice daily to three times Monday to Friday.  CityJet serves London City to Amsterdam, Antwerp, Brive, Dresden, Dublin, Florence, Nantes, Paris-Orly and Rotterdam.  From Cardiff it operates to Edinburgh and Paris-Orly.

The Blue Islands CityJet tie-up is the first ever airline connecting service at the airport and is considered a breakthrough.  The airside lounge arrangement at LCY ensures a very quick change of aircraft if needed.

CityJet passengers, mainly to and from Dublin, have been able to join the airline’s mainland Europe routes for some time. 

Currently Blue Islands operate alternate day direct flights from Jersey to Amsterdam and Paris and twice weekly services to Zurich.  With the new arrangement travellers can take day returns in either direction.  Passengers will also benefit from APD (Air Passenger Duty) savings when booking connecting flights through the codeshare.  www.cityjet.com    www.blueislands.com
