Guernsey and Jersey are to be connected with Dusseldorf with a new summer-only service by Flybe.

The regional carrier is to connect the two Channel islands with the German city with weekly Saturday flights.

The route will run between April 29 and September 30 with one-way fares starting at £39.99.

Inbound flights Guernsey will operate via a 30 minute stopover in Jersey.

Flybe chief revenue office, Vincent Hodder, said: “We would expect this service to continue to boost inbound visitors taking advantage of the convenient short one hour, 40 minute flight from our new Dusseldorf base.”
