Dozens of islanders will fly to the Mediterranean on Sunday with the start of a summer programme of direct flights from Guernsey to Mallorca.
The flight - on a 98-seat Embraer jet - will take off from Guernsey at 09:25 and arrive in the Spanish island before 12:30 local time.
Direct flights from Guernsey to Mallorca will operate throughout the summer this year with seats available until 18 September.
Pictured: Guernsey residents flying to Mallorca on Sunday are expected to land in temperatures of around 30 degrees Celsius. The forecast for the next week there is for plenty of sunshine and temperatures between 30 and 33 degrees Celsius.
The flights are operated by FlyDirect’s partner airline, British Airways CityFlyer.
There are direct flights from Jersey to Mallorca as well this weekend. The first of these left Jersey at 09:40 on Saturday and a second leaves Jersey at 18:10 on Saturday. Direct flights from Jersey will run until 24 September.
In total, around 300 Channel Islanders are expected to land in Mallorca this weekend.
With daytime departures and a flight time of just under two hours, FlyDirect said they were providing a fast and convenient route to the Balearic island.
Pictured: Islanders have around four months to enjoy the Mediterranean without the need for connecting flights.
Commenting on the start of the summer flying programme, Robert Mackenzie, Managing Director of C. I. Travel Group, said: "We are delighted to be able to be taking so many islanders away for the half-term break this weekend.
"With all the current news around queues and delays at UK airports, we are confident we can provide a fantastic service that will ensure a stress-free journey to and from the beautiful island of Mallorca.
"Following last year’s resumption of our direct flight programme, demand this year has been exceptionally strong from both islands, with extra flights added for the school holidays from Jersey.
