The last commercial Trislander flight

The last commercial Trislander flight takes off this weekend between Jersey and Guernsey.

The popular 18 seater three-engined aircraft are being replaced by Blue Islands planes as the company shares the inter-island routes with States owned Aurigny.

The airlines were given the go ahead to share the inter-island route earlier this year.

It follows a campaign by islanders in Jersey and Guernsey to save the small planes.

Facebook group ‘Save Joey The Trislander’ has been campaigning to keep the characterful aircraft flying the skies of the Channel Islands.

Many islanders have fond memories growing up with plane, taking trips on it to the other islands.

Joey has a painted red nose, eyes and a smile on the front of the aircraft and even had its own cartoon written for it.
