Condor reveals summer sailings as border restrictions ease


Condor has revealed a high-speed sailings schedule featuring Poole, Portsmouth and St Malo day trips, with border restrictions set to relax this summer.

The Bailiwick has re-introduced a traffic light-style system for travellers, and the island will be taking another step towards more relaxed border restrictions this coming Friday, when category 2 returns for certain regions.

Category three destinations require a week of self-isolation and category two destinations only require self-isolation until your first covid test comes back negative. 

It means travel is fast becoming a reality again, after more than a year of severe travel restrictions in and out of the Bailiwick.

“The Covid reality of the past 12 months is that we have only carried a fraction of our expected passengers,” said a spokesperson for Condor. “So this has meant a complete review of the level of service we are able to provide.”

“Passenger schedules will, nevertheless, show an overall increase in seat and car capacity compared with previous years."

The new schedule includes direct, high speed services to Poole and Portsmouth, as well as a Guernsey to St Malo day trip operating twice a week.

Condor has previously stated that it won’t require proof of negative tests before travel.

“The schedule in general focuses on the peaks, notably at weekends when people want to travel,” said the spokesperson. “Everyone knows that the past year has been challenging for everyone in tourism."

“We are, though, really looking forward to resuming services to bring in much needed tourism and reunite families once again and are keen to see a recovery in passenger travel.”

The Clipper continues to run daily freight and passenger services from Portsmouth, as well as inter-island schedules between Guernsey and Jersey.
