BLUE Islands is to offer more seats on its peak inter-island services from the end of this month, when it introduces a larger aircraft.
The airline is due to replace its 46-seat ATR 42, which operates the peak morning and evening flights on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, with an ATR 72, capable of carrying up to 68 passengers.
Economic Development Minister Lyndon Farnham, who has previously raised concerns over the state of inter-island travel, welcomed the arrival of the new aircraft, which is due to come into service on 28 March.
