Loganair is the newest airline to serve Bournemouth Airport, with it having launched a twice-weekly service to Jersey on 29 April. To celebrate the new route, the airport baked this impressive cake. A second link to the channel islands, in the form of a weekly connection to Guernsey, will begin on 13 May based on OAG data.
- Loganair launched its first route from Bournemouth (BOH) on 29 April, starting a connection to Jersey (JER). The carrier will serve the 175-kilometre route twice-weekly (Mondays and Fridays) using its fleet of 37-seat E135s. No other airline currently links the two airports, with the last commercial service between the two destinations having been in January 2016 when Flybe offered a four times weekly link using Q400s. This was during the time that Flybe had a base at the South UK airport. Loganair will commence a second route from Bournemouth on 11 May when it initiates a weekly (Saturdays) service to Guernsey. This airport pair was last flown by Blue Islands in 2013 when the carrier offered a three times weekly link using 19-seat Jetstream 31s which have since left its fleet.
