Islands to get Swiss air routes
Direct flights are resuming between the Channel Islands and Switzerland.

Blue Islands will begin operating scheduled flights from Jersey to Geneva and Zurich from November, with connections to Guernsey.

Crossair, a Swissair subsidiary, pulled out of its Channel Island to Zurich route in 2003.

The 90-minute flights will operate from Jersey to Zurich on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, and to Geneva on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Inter-island flights will connect to and from Guernsey.

Blue Islands say the flights are intended to increase links with Swiss business and tourism.
