Guernsey air bridge

Announced on 26 June that the Isle of Man and Guernsey are to form an air bridge corridor as neither island has had any active cases for some time now. We believe this bridge is a reasonable - and safe - proposition.

This will be both a reciprocal arrangement and a commercial opportunity for our two islands. It will allow residents with itchy feet to get off their respective Islands and visit another!

Our residents can enjoy the attractions of Guernsey and sample different shops, restaurants and beaches. It will give businesses in both Islands a welcome boost.

This will be a fully commercial operation, operated by the Guernsey-owned airline Aurigny with two flights a week starting with from Tuesday 21 July 2020Private aircrafts are also permitted to travel between Isle of Man and Guernsey under the airbridge reciprocal arrangement.

Travel agencies at both ends will work together on the marketing and booking process, and will explore options for accommodation packages to build around the flights.

For details on flights visit Aurigny airlines

This air bridge is expected to be the first established by any governments in the British Isles, as well as being the first air bridge between two jurisdictions within the British Isles.

It is important that anyone wishing to use the air bridge ensures they have the appropriate insurance in place.  There is no reciprocal agreement in place between the Isle of Man and Guernsey, and therefore it is important to have insurance that includes emergency healthcare and repatriation (return travel to someone's home country).

If you are visiting the island and become symptomatic during your stay please call 111. Note that this number may not work using UK or Guernsey mobile phones.

In those circumstances please email 111@gov.im
