Direct flights to Florence & Prague thanks to local partnership

Blue Islands and Bontour have teamed up to give Channel Islanders two more direct European city break destinations for 2018.

Three night breaks in Florence and Prague will now be just one flight away thanks to the new partnership.

Rob Veron, Blue Islands CEO, said the airline was constantly looking at innovative ways of enhancing outbound travel opportunities for its Guernsey and Jersey communities.

"We know Islanders want direct travel to Europe for leisure breaks, however Guernsey’s sub-scale population numbers mean we have to be creative with how we balance the public’s desire for new route options, with the financial viability of such provisions," he said.

"The partnership with local tour operator Bontour means we were able to create these one-off city break packages on specific dates. Whether it’s soaking up culture in Florence, or getting festive in the renowned Prague Christmas Markets, we hope these special packages will prove popular and become the start of many more similar opportunities.”

Robert Mackenzie, Managing Director, C. I. Travel Group, added: “C. I. Travel Group are delighted to be working with our long-established partner, Blue Islands, to be able to offer these two wonderful city breaks this autumn.

"Bontour already provides many opportunities for Channel Islanders to travel to Europe and this has been further enhanced by these new direct-flight breaks to Prague and Florence. I am sure they will prove popular with both Guernsey & Jersey residents.”
