Jersey Jet Centre launches private air taxi service Isle-Fly

Jersey Jet Centre has launched Isle-Fly, its private air taxi solution and the first new service of its kind in the Channel Islands region for over thirty years.

Isle-Fly will operate with an eight-seat multi-engine Cessna aircraft that can fly to destinations two hours away from Jersey or Guernsey. The new company hopes to add a variety of aircraft to its offering as it establishes itself as a travel option.

Colin Wright, founder and commercial director, commented, “Isle-Fly is a functional and efficient proposition that the Islands desperately need, bridging the gap between scheduled flights and expensive jet charters.

“It’s your plane, your way. You choose when and where you want to fly. We can access smaller airfields that get you closer to your destination, avoiding the congested larger hubs. It’s the perfect solution and we are extremely excited to be launching today.”

Doug Bannister, group CEO of the Ports of Jersey, added, “The introduction of this new product is very exciting, and offers customers more choice in travel options from the Islands. We hope this product will become very popular, and wish the new company every future success with its plans.”
