We would also expect this service to provide a boost to Guernsey tourism with inbound holidaymakers taking advantage of the short, convenient flight from our new Dusseldorf base.”
 
Mike Hopkins,Director of Marketing and Tourism for the States of Guernsey, added; “The German visitor market is a very important market for Guernsey and we are delighted that Flybe will be launching this new route for 2017. Guernsey has a strong connection with the Dusseldorf area and I am sure this established relationship will help Flybe’s new service be a real success.”
