First visitors from Guernsey due today

Tourists from Guernsey will touch down on the Isle of Man today, marking the beginning of a new air bridge between the two Islands.

The travel corridor between the jurisdictions was announced last month by Chief Minister, Howard Quayle MHK, after both Islands have seen several weeks without any new or active cases of COVID-19.

It means residents of both Guernsey and the Isle of Man can travel to either destination without needing to self-isolate on arrival or on their return.

Mr Quayle has previously called the air bridge a 'major milestone' that 'reflects how well both communities have responded to the COVID-19 pandemic.'

Meanwhile, Chief Minister of Guernsey, Gavin St Pier, believes the Guernsey community will welcome the route 'enormously' and that Manx residents will receive a 'very warm welcome' when travelling over.

The flights - being run by Guernsey-based airline, Aurigny - have seen very high demand from tourists since they became available at the start of the month.
