Rob Veron, Blue Islands’ Managing Director:
As a result of the extreme and deteriorating weather conditions within the Channel Islands today (9 March 2016) Blue Islands have cancelled all of today’s remaining flights to and from Guernsey and Jersey. The States of Jersey Meteorological Department has issued a Red storm warning with forecasts of storm Force 10 with winds gusting to 70 Knots continuing. At the time of release, wind conditions are beyond the safely permissible operating conditions at both Islands’ airports. Furthermore, wind strength is forecast to increase over the next 12 hours.
